New York City will become the first metropolis in the U.S. to ban cigarette displays if legislation proposed by Mayor Bloomberg passes. The measure would be a dramatic change from the high-profile positioning of tobacco products near checkout counters at retail outlets and would follow up on other aggressive anti-smoking laws in the Big Apple.

    meh, less money spent on ads, who cares... honestly does advertising put people over the fence about whether to smoke or not?

    Bloomberg is going the direction of momentum; he wants to be your nanny on the cheap.

    When I see so many overweight people on the streets, TV, etc.,It seems that overweight will kill far more people than smoking. Am
    not a smoker. Even 15 lbs. overweight leads to early deaths.

    15 lbs depends upon your size and other factors, age...
    some overweight has yet to be scientifically proven to early deaths -- can you reference a peer reviewed scientific study supporting your opinion?

    So, as an ex school teacher, you know the definition of non-sequitur, right ?

    Sex isn't advertised anywhere but, everybody's doing it, especially teenagers. Bloomberg is a nut case. Pot is outlawed entirely and anyone can see how effective that is. Liquor prohibition was tried on a national level with the thought that people would stop drinking. It had just the opposite effect and the gangsters collected the money the government used to get from taxes. The definition of stupid is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. So, by that definition, Bloomberg is stupid.

    Bloomberg in fact is very very smart
    he knows full well that his approach will not effect either smokers or drinkers only the SMALL businesses and buyers are harmed

    Excuse me. Why is this article written regarding Philip Morris (PM)? PM doesn't sell cigarettes in the U.S. That would be MO. The author should be more careful.

    Big Brother Bloomberg has your best interests at heart. !!
    First Amendment be damned. Anyone in NYC caught talking about cigarettes or tobacco or seen drinking Big Gulps, will be subjected to intensive moral rehabilitation therapy at the City's morality purifying centers.

    Bloomberg needs to go. He has long outlived his usefulness.

    He probably sneaks a cigarette puff as he sips his oversize Pepsi. Just like a reformed alcoholic - insists that everyone stop drinking.
