Hidden Tobacco Will Come at a Cost 

Madison County, N.Y., retailers outline expenses of proposed tobacco display ban

Intro:

"Operationally, it's going to be a nightmare," Peter Tamburro, a senior exec at Madison County-based Nice N Easy Grocery Shoppes, told Tobacco E-News. "Many convenience stores (although not Nice N Easy) run with one clerk per shift. If the products have to be locked up, they'll be in a back room. How can the clerk get to the product if the consumer asks for it without abandoning the register?"

If the ban proposed by the Madison County Board of Health passes, tobacco retailers open to minors would be required to keep tobacco products out of sight, although where they put the products would be up to the store owners. Ban proponents suggest retailers could put tobacco products under the counter, in a back room, behind a curtain or any location where they cannot be seen by customers.

Anyway, they add, most consumers know what product they want to buy--whether visible or out of sight.

Merchants strongly disagree. Cliff Brazie, director of retail merchandising for Warren, Pa.-based Kwik Fill/Red Apple Food Marts, said this isn't always the case, especially in New York, which boasts the highest cigarette tax in the country.

"Smokers still want to go someplace where they can see what you have," said Brazie, whose company operates several stores in New York, including Madison County.

Graphic warnings on cigarettes to be argued in April 

Jump to full article: Legal NewsLine, 2012-03-27
Author: JOHN O'BRIEN

Intro:

Appeals in the tobacco industry's challenge of new graphic warning labels being imposed by the federal government are scheduled for next month.

On Monday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit scheduled oral arguments for April 10 in the federal government's appeal of two lower court rulings in favor of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco and four other companies.

In a motion on March 9, the tobacco companies asked for an "expedited but orderly" briefing schedule. The court complied, and briefing will be completed by Friday.

Should the three-judge panel from the D.C. Circuit affirm the rulings of U.S. District Judge Richard Leon, it will be in conflict with a recent decision by the Sixth Circuit.

The appeals concern Leon's granting of a preliminary injunction against the warning labels, which include diseased lungs and a cadaver with chest staples, and summary judgment in favor of the tobacco companies.

U.S. tycoon plans $22bn economy-boosting EuroVegas in Spain - so long as they change rules on smoking indoors  

Jump to full article: The Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday (uk), 2012-03-27
Author: Matt Blake

Intro:

Creaking under the weight of chronic debt and uncertainty, Spain may not conjure visions of carefree fun and all-night parties.

But salvation may be on its way... in the shape of a Las Vegas-esque vice city, that developers say will boost its flat-lining economy.

Dubbed 'EuroVegas', it will house six casinos, 12 hotels, nine theatres and three golf courses, if America's eighth richest man gets his way.

Sheldon Adelson, however, says he will only go ahead if Spain bends its rules on indoor smoking and caps on soaring skyscrapers.

Officials want Russian duty free to cut cheap ciggies  

Jump to full article: RT TV / TV Novosti (ru), 2012-03-27

Intro:

Russian public health officials are up in arms against tobacco sales both at home and abroad. They are pushing for legislation banning duty free shops from selling cigarettes. Russia may become the first country to implement such a measure.

The Russian Ministry of Public Health argues cigarettes bought in duty free shops are often smuggled to other countries, where retail prices for tobacco products are higher, the RBC Daily reports.

The Russian Government stressed the proposal should be also considered by Belarus and Kazakhstan, Russia’s partners in Custom Union. The authorities have already submitted the proposal these countries.

But experts from the Russian Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Industry and Trade consider the claim groundless as retail prices for cigarettes in Russia are much lower that those in duty free shops.
