The author reflects on the regulation of tobacco displays in shops in New Zealand in 2012. She explains that the ban does not allow the display of tobacco products in or on any sales outlets. She emphasizes the impact of the ban on supermarkets and points out that display is not a major factor for making choices on smoking. She also cites the shift in the National-led government's position on the proposal to impose plain packaging on tobacco products.
