Too Pricey For Young Smokers

Mar 05, 2009 – SCMP

I agree with the 50 per cent increase in tobacco duty announced in the budget. The government has worked hard at promoting its anti-smoking campaign. This tax rise will make cigarettes unaffordable for teenagers and people on low incomes.

I think it will definitely prevent more young people from taking up smoking.
