Cigs under the counter in Ireland?


I bet it won't be a very long time before you see this idea happen in the US...whetha the folks in Ireland approve of keeping cigs under the counter or not in stores.

In order to get people to stop smoking, we gotta hide the packs and cartons UNDER counters so nobody won't see the cigs. Makes sense to me. I just hope an Ireland smoker doesn't leap over the counter and grab the pack himself if the clerk can't find the brand the smoker is looking for.

Hiding cigs under the counter is NOT gonna help cut down on smoking in ANY country.

That's depressing that Canada's BS law(and as virtually all provinces there have enacted such laws, to my knowledge) requiring cigarette displays to be hidden is now spreading to other countries! However, I'm not totally surprised it spread to Ireland(of all countries it possibly could spread to, and looking at the vigor of Irish politicians for anti-smoking legislation), considering they were the first country in the world to enact a comprehensive countrywide smoking ban.

Just a matter of time before some California politician gets around to proposing such a state ban on open cigarette displays in stores, considering California usually is on the cutting edge of this crap.... *sigh*
