According to a proposal at this week’s PLOS Medicine, licences for smokers should be employed to help cut down the number of smokers.
This radical suggestion by Professor Simon Chapman from the University of Sydney has had mixed responses and will require smokers to buy yearly licences which will limit how many smokers will buy. Not only is it believed that this will cut down the number of cigarettes smoked but will also deter young people from taking up the habit because of the cost involved. Professor Chapman has argued that there is currently not enough measures to deter smokers from smoking.
