How about enforcing the minimum age laws and crack down severely on vendors who sell to minors.  Get ...

Canada did just that.
The police even send in underage people to try and buy ciggs, a few vendors been caught and are fined, and/or  they loose the right to sell the poison.


And also, we have seen less and less smoking on TV and movies.
Smoking is also banned in restaurants/bars/hospitals...etc

Still have a way to go....



15% of Canadians report smoking tobacco, lowest rate ever: survey. Federal survey finds 9% of respondents have tried an e-cigarette, with the number jumping to 20% of young people aged 15 to 24. A national survey has found that the smoking rate among Canadians is at an all-time low, at 15 per cent of the population.Feb 3, 2015

Yes.   Raise the smoking age to a minimum of 50 years so that only the old start, especially those with a reduced life expectancy.

What an abstruse proposal! Your politicians have poor imagination and no good ideas! The young who can afford to smoke can do that because they do not have to worry whether they have enough money to buy the next packet of fags. Parents are daft enough to give their little emperors so much dough many of them feel there is no point in ever going to work.

And as long as adults light up even in no-smoking areas the little ones will happily emulate their adult role models. Especially those talking heads currently chitchatting in that big jamboree being held in Beijing!

It's hard to win an argument with a smart person. It's damned near impossible to win an argument with a stupid person.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
