Proposed Law: displaying cigarettes openly for sale

MKs Yehuda Glick (Likud) and Eitan Cabel (Hamachane Hatzioni) have proposed a law to limit the marketing and advertising of cigarettes ad other smoking products. Among the limitations would be a clause that such products cannot be presented openly for sale.

The result of this proposal is that kiosks and "piztutziyot" (snack shops), quick stops, convenient stores, duty free shops, etc., would not be allowed to have the cigarettes and other tobacco products out on open display.

The committee working on this bill approved it caused quite a stir, upsetting many saying it would cause a lot of harm to the convenience stores that sell so many cigarettes. Glick and others who support and promoted the bill say they are not trying to hurt the shops, and would be willing to find ways to help the shops, but cigarettes cause cancer and 8000 people die each year in Israel from smoking.

  1. Out of sight, out of mind? Do they think people start smoking because the cigarettes look so attractive?
