Smoking in Australia on rise
Contriving to legislate to actually increase smoking after a ten year decline must be some special kind of achievement. Perhaps the the Aus government will start to see some sense now and reverse its anti-vaping policies.

RE: Smoking in Australia on rise
What the stats fail to admit though is that they don't include the massive rise is black market tobacco.

It simply doesn't exist, because if it did it would undo decades of tobacco control bullshit.

Who would have guessed it? One of the most expensive places in the world to buy fags, and a black market exists ? Smiling. If that drops the tax income enough, maybe they will allow the safer alternative?
