Tasmania To Ban Fag Sales

In a plan that is destined to fail (if it is enacted), and bring about a major increase in revenues for organised crime, Tasmanian Nanny is considering banning the sale of tobacco to anyone born after 2000.

ABC News reports that Legislative Council member Ivan Dean wants to make it illegal for people born after 2000 to buy tobacco once they turn 18 - meaning they would never legally be able to buy cigarettes.

The proposal was passed unanimously by the Upper House on Tuesday night.

Is it not an individual's right to decide what he or she chooses to put into their body?

Why does Nanny insist on trying to legislate about what we are allowed to eat, drink, smoke, snort etc?

Needless to say there are those who will come up with the "passive smoking" argument, yet far more damage is done to us by the passive ingestion of pollution (airborne and waterborne) from cars, lorries, factories etc etc.

I am sure that Nanny states around the world will be watching this with interest, and will be itching to do the same.

It is a bad/dangerous idea, and it is destined to fail. Yet Nanny never learns that banning things makes them ever more attractive.

    It is like a competition for countries to invent even more unworkable restrictions on a legal and taxed product.

    At least in years to come Tasmanian pensioners will be able to earn a few dollars by hanging around tobacco shops and buying fags for 40 and 50 year olds that are banned because they were born after the year 2000.

    The latest bollocks from Australia was that all cigarettes will be sold in plain packets. How the fuck will that stop people smoking?

    All that will happen is cigarette companies will start selling empty packets made from durable materials; you buy your 20 Bensons in their plain box and transfer the cigarettes into the nice shiny metal branded box that was sold by the same fag shop.
    I can imagine that there are factories now in China busily making metal and leather fake branded boxes for the Australian market.

    Obviously Benson & Hedges, Marlboro and a few other quality brands will do very well out of this, but you really wouldn’t want to buy a durable Super Kings box, would you.
