Did you know? There are 5 times more tobacco retailers than pharmacies in NSW?
Cigarettes are available ‘anywhere, anytime’ – the law places few limits on who may sell tobacco, where and when they may sell, or the number of outlets selling tobacco.
Last year Cancer Council NSW conducted an audit of 1,739 tobacco outlets NSW and found targeted reforms to the retail sector could make it easier for smokers to quit and remain quit, help stop young people taking up smoking and protect communities we have so far failed to protect.
Join our “Harmful not Helpful” photo challenge by getting 10 friends or family photographed with a sign asking for action to reduce the temptation of tobacco.
Help us reach our target of 9,597 photos (one for every retail outlet!) to highlight the need for action!
