An easy way to cut youth smoking

Impose hefty fines on retailers who supply to kids. This Queensland retailer was fined $2000 and could have been hit up to $10,000. Why not $10,000 or indeed $100,000?

22% of underage smokers obtain their cigarettes directly from retailers in NSW.

If you really wanted to be tough fine illegal cigarette purchasers as well as illegal vendors.
