French leaders are quarreling over the government tobacco company's decision to introduce a new brand of cigarette aimed specifically at young people.

The release of the new brand comes just two months after the lawmakers voted to ban cigarette advertising after Jan. 1, 1993 in a campaign to curb smoking.Premier Michel Rocard condemned the tobacco company SEITA for marketing the new brand, called "Chevignon" - which uses the same label as a 1950s-style clothing company popular with high school students.
