Taking Nation's Pulse on Tobacco Rights 

Pollster frames debate as individual rights vs. government intervention
Jump to full article: Convenience Store/Petroleum (CSPNet), 2012-04-27
Author: Mitch Morrison

Intro:

"You don't need a pollster to tell you that public opinion of your industry is challenging."

So began Scott Rasmussen, the respected pollster best known for his nationally acclaimed Rasmussen Reports, which tracks presidential and Congressional elections, along with public sentiment on issues of the day.

Speaking before tobacco-outlet and convenience-store operators at the 2012 NATO Show in Las Vegas, Rasmussen confronted one of the country's most heavily regulated and reviled industries, one that is on virtually every state's agenda as a tax revenue source even as its right to operate is increasingly restricted.

So, Rasmussen said candidly, the news for tobacco rights is not very good. That said, there are glimmers of hope.

Only 22% of Americans support banning tobacco outright. And, he added, "Nine out of 10 Americans believe that those who smoke know the risk. That's a very good number for your industry."

Justice Ministry and Justice Palace go smoke free 

Jump to full article: Beirut Daily Star (lb), 2012-04-27
Author: Youssef Diab

Intro:

The Justice Ministry and Beirut's Justice Palace went smoke-free Thursday, complying with the law but only after several minor glitches. A law banning smoking in public places was passed after much debate in Parliament last year.

It also banned tobacco advertising on products and increased the sizes of the required pictorial warnings on packs. The law is coming into effect gradually - Parliament made the leap early last month.

Speaking at the Justice Ministry, Justice Minister Shakib Qortbawi announced that smoking will now be banned in the two buildings, where employees were said to have warned each other before his arrival so they could put their cigarettes out in time.
