- Banning retail tobacco sales: time to start the discussion
- Smoking is being increasingly banned where there is power and the will to enact bans—cars transporting children, hospital grounds, public buildings, public transport, parks and private apartment blocks. Internationally, smokers are being excluded from opportunities, such as employment with the World Health Organization and free health insurance in Jakarta. Here in Australia we only enact these partial or settings-based tobacco bans but have not yet progressed to discussion of a total ban on the sale of tobacco. To date, only one country, Bhutan, has actually legislated a total ban of retail tobacco sales.
