Just in the first few lines one can read that doctors are calling for a ban. But I doubt most politicians want to loose the tax-income.

Does Australia have tobacco farmers, or cigarette manufacturers? That is: enough to form a powerful lobby against this?

Not that I am taking sides about it.

It happens in Australia, fortunately Polish teenagers can sleep peacefully, because Poland borders with Ukraine, Belarus and most importantly with Kaliningrad :D

Not really, but it has its advantages sometimes :mrgreen:
Among other things, such as the ability to show the government the "middle finger" when the government allows them self to much :D

Whenever I hear the word "ban" it sets off alarms since it is a favorite word of do-gooders, fascists, and control freaks in general.
Smoking is on a continual decline so there is no need to ban or further control what is already on the wane.

The GOP would have to ban religion to stay relevant.
