U.S. Colleges and Universities Deserve an 'A' for Going Tobacco-Free
Professor Linda Bauld, of the university’s Institute of Social Marketing, said new research funded by the tobacco industry is attempting to hamper plans for plain cigarette packaging in Scotland.
Former Scotland Yard Detective Will O’Reilly carried out an undercover investigation into the illicit tobacco trade, where his team was able to buy 44 packs of illegal cigarettes and two 50g quantities of roll-your-own tobacco. During the three-day operation, which covered Alloa, Falkirk and Stirling, the cheapest pack of 20 cigarettes was bought for £3.50 - less than half the normal retail price, which averages at £8 a pack.
