While different brands of cigarettes appear and alcoholic drinks are mostly poured from non-marked decanters, this doesn't mean Netflix is not paid for their appearance. It only means they're not paid by Brand X or Y. There's still a strong possibility Netflix is paid by overarching booze and tobacco entities. Why does nobody mention this?

My son and I watched season 1 of stranger things together and 1 week later i caught him smoking. Link perhaps?

As an ex-smoker now 40+ years, it was triggering me with short, small urges while watching so many shows with actors smoking. And I thought, "Wow, it seems like there is more smoking appearing in these shows." So I appreciate this article. I like the idea of adding warnings on the show/movie ratings. That way I can decide if I don't want to watch it or not.
