England bans public cigarette sales | The Guardian

Packets of cigarettes will disappear from the shelves of supermarkets in England on Friday and must stay hidden in closed cupboards, out of sight and – the government and campaigners hope – out of mind.
New legislation, aimed at reducing the temptation to smoke for children and young people, will require all large shops and supermarkets to scrap displays at the point of sale. Campaigners argue that these have become more visual, colourful and attractive as bans on other forms of advertising have closed down marketing opportunities for tobacco companies.

some background:

Smoking causes around 80,000 preventable deaths each year and costs the UK’s National Health Service $8 billion annually. source
England already has some of the strictest anti-smoking laws in the world. Advertising was banned in 2002, smoking was banned from pubs and restaurants in 2007 and graphic warnings were introduced to cigarette packets the following year. Cigarette vending machines were also outlawed from October last year. source


The messages they put on cigarettes these days are pretty funny. like “smoking can cause serous skin aging,” really? can you really only get ppl to quit by appealing to their aesthetic? death isn’t enough?

    I wish this would just end. I really don’t see anything beneficial or fun about smoking cigarettes.
