    Exclamation Plain Packaging

    The government are facing pressure from the tobacco giants:

    Do you think plain packaging will discourage newcomers or will it further enable the counterfeiters?

    Plain packaging never stopped anyone from buying sex toys and having them delivered by mail

    Plain packaging isn't going to stop people smoking, it will just confuse the poor shopkeepers selling them.

    Will plain packets help to discourage teens from starting to smoke? I can remember seeing
    the Benson's box as a child and thinking it resembled a gold bar. The packaging made the
    dangerous product appear sophisticated.

    If plain packaging won't make any difference, why are the manufacturers kicking up such a rumpus?
