Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An interesting experiment
New Zealand will ban the sale of tobacco to its next generation, in a bid to eventually phase out smoking.

Anyone born after 2008 will not be able to buy cigarettes or tobacco products in their lifetime, under a law expected to be enacted next year.

"We want to make sure young people never start smoking," Health Minister Dr Ayesha Verall said.

But I imagine the legislation will not outlive the current government... (long may it reign)
