Despite wishing I was still a smoker, I find this cool.
Also, @Tech: You have no idea what's in some cigarettes in the world...

I tried the skull & crossbones but couldn't get it to look right. So I googled toxic symbol and this was the easiest thing I could do. Like I said it was completely random. Thanks to everyone for the great feedback.

I don't get it.. why a radiation hazard trefoil? Wouldn't something like a skull and crossbones make more sense? I know they put a lot of crap in cigarettes, but I don't think enriched Uranium is on the list.
