Tobacco firms have lost their legal challenge over the lawfulness of the government's new plain packaging rules.

From tomorrow, cigarette packets will no longer be able to feature any logos or branding.

Brand names must be in small, non-distinctive lettering and any part of the packaging not covered by a health warning must be dark brown or green.

And picture health warnings must cover 65% of the front and back of every packet, with additional warnings on top.

So the people who buy a ten pack a day to regulate their smoking have now had their health scuppered.

If they want to discourage smoking, tax it out of existence.

How much is a packet of cigs these days?They must cost a fortune for a packet of 20.

i'm not a smoker but i'm fairly sure you only get a few pence change from a tenner.

about 10 years ago when i was 16 i used to go the shop for my mum for cigarettes, she gave me a fiver and said i could keep the change, naturally it went on sweets but even then it was sub 5 and in 10 years they've nearly doubled in price and i'm also aware that they do packs of 18 and 19 instead of 20 now!

In 1987 it was 68p for 10 and 1.33 for 20. I bought 10 'low end' ones the other day for 3.59

Govt need the tax revenue.if tax rev from cigs drops then they will add it to other things.i suppose like alcohol if the price gets too high people just reduce the quantity.....which might be good for our health. Think of all themoney the council will lose with no ciggy butt fine revenue
What about shops stock....can they selloff the present packets

From Yes Prime Minister in 1986, Plans to eliminate smoking:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AA9xxNqR_WE

Ban on tobacco sponsorship, advertising and at point of Sale
Ban smoking in public places
tax rises to make a packet of 20 the same as a bottle of whisky

The audience laugh at some of the outrageous suggestions, but I think they're all in place now (we might have to choose Aldi whisky)

I wish they would legalize cannabis too, for medical reasons. As an alternative to tobacco for yourself Gary, have you given vaping a go?

Sativex is a cannabis extract and Nabilone is a synthetic version of THC, both are licensed in the UK.

If people want more widespread availability it is much more likely to happen if they push for the required chemicals to be authorised rather than trying to legalise cannabis.

No Gary they don't need to legalise cannabis! You need to deal with reality! Legalising one drug can only open the path to legalising them all. Anyway if they government did legalise it,it would be so heavily taxed like tobacco that you'd be sorry for what you wished for.

Deal with reality ... I do that everyday.
Like I said the government need to legalize it as cigarettes are deadly as cancer or c.o.p.d , alcohol turns people into unhealthy morons who think they are happy with their mundane existences , vaping isn't appealing to me as it's new and realistically untested in my opinion whereas cannabis has been around since the dawn of time and when used sparingly is a wonderful plant which would be a lovely thing for the ruling classes to do !!! But I'm sure they won't .. oh well back to reality hey !!!
