What are the arguements for and against?
As I understand it this will cover all tobacco products. In Australia they had to sell hand-rolled Cuban cigars without the authentic Habana band. Result: Only contraband cigars could be sold. No one is going to fork out $30 for a plain cigar!
I don't sell fags but I do sell quite a lot of cigars for up to £24.50 a pop. Putting them in plain tubes is not going to stop kiddies smoking.
Also: As many people smoke smuggled/counterfiet fags how f*cking easy can they make it for them?
