Bloomberg announces legislation to ban display of cigarettes
If passed, the law would require stores to keep tobacco products in cabinets, drawers, under the counter, behind a curtain or in other concealed cubbies. Tobacco could only be visible when an adult is making a purchase or while employess are restocking. Similar restrictions were imposed in Iceland in 2001 and Canada in 2005, and these countries have seen substantial declines in youth smoking.

    I wonder how much this ban contributed to the decline in youth smoking compared to other preventative efforts.
