NEW York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has unveiled legislation to force shopkeepers to cover cigarettes with a curtain or use some other method to keep tobacco out of view.

The bill, which needs approval in the City Council, would make New York the first US city to adopt such a measure and is the latest initiative in Bloomberg's war on smoking and other unhealthy habits.

The billionaire former smoker said keeping cigarettes hidden would help reduce smoking rates among youngsters who could be tempted to buy a pack along with the sweets and other goodies often arrayed nearby.

"New York City has dramatically lowered our smoking rate, but even one new smoker is one too many - especially when it's a young person," Bloomberg said on Monday.

"Young people are targets of marketing and the availability of cigarettes, and this legislation will help prevent another generation from the ill health and shorter life expectancy that comes with smoking."

Finland has had that law for about a year. Has it really stopped anyone from smoking? I seriously doubt that.
Good intentions, questionable outcome. I read recently cigs are eleven bucks a pack in Chicago, glad I gave that up.

Um..... It's already against the law to SELL cigarettes to minors. Regardless if they are seen or not. Just more ğkking bullshit regulations. Bloomberg must feel like he has to imply regulations on everything or the people won't need him anymore. What a ğkking douchebag.


They gonna hide the beer and booze too?

Bloomberg, you're a ğkking tard. Go ğck yourself.

I too am not sure of the outcome, but the kids don't seem to be looking at the smokes anymore just the totaly accessable nudy mags, you know, it makes no sense to cover up nudy mags lol.gifchuckle.gif
