New cigarette packets in Australia glorify death and disease
IF you like death and disease you should love these new cigarette packets designed by the Australian State. The country has introduced plain packaging for cigarettes. It now means that its takes smokers much longer than ever to pick out their favoured brand. It should also mean more youth picking a packet of iffy Raffles over cool Marlboro Lights, albeit accidentally.
All tobacco boxes are now a dull brown-green colour (see smokers’ lungs) and festooned with anti-smoking messages and gory photographs. The brand names appears in smell letting.
So. Does it work. Would these new packets put you off smoking?
