Will it help reduce kids getting addicted to it in their mid-to-late teens and developing into an addictive habit? In certain demographics, yes imo...
Will it stop teenagers from trying and smoking from their early teens, not imo...
Will it just increase the use among girls (where use is increasing) who are desperate to rebel, most definately imo...
Who wants to bet kids will start selling ciggies in school and they'll most likely be 6th formers... have new laws come in place to deal with this?
Will schools be able to enforce all their kids NOT to smoke? (My school accomodated smoking for 6th formers)
Will kids claim human rights issues despite breaking the law but having an addiction? (prisoners were able to sue for addiction they couldn't have why not students?)
Has more funding been allowed for schools to deal with all the varying enforcement (expensive cctv setups anyone?), health, policy, councilling etc required that might increase at some schools
While I agree with the new law, it's a shame its been so bloody badly thought out and no doubt will be just as badly implimented
Overall a good thing, just a shame we're more concerned these days with protectings kids rights than keeping them inline with common decency and not shedding them of the invincibility attitude many of the little ***** seem to have
