Cigarettes - Plain Packaging From Now On

The attack on public choice continues.
All cigarettes now must be sold in plain packaging with pictures of the harmful effects of smoking.
They must also have more health warnings.
Packs of 10 will no longer be on sale either.
Because people are smoking less nowadays the last UK factory that made cigarettes has also closed.

Its not really a good idea.
Its only a way to stop people's choices.

The fags are already behind doors and you are not allowed to see them while in the shops.

Here we are well into August and I have seen no changes apart from the fags being hidden away from customers.
I will not be reading any newspapers today, its my day off!

This has already kicked in in the UK.
I saw this in Australia, plain boxes with health pictures and a small brand name.
