Italian Cigarette Sales Update

In January, Italy introduced a public smoking ban. Shortly thereafter, cigarette sales were claimed to have fallen by 19%, though Vice Squad, displaying its usual reserve, was suspicious of the depth of the decline. A recent update puts the sales decline at a more reasonable 9%. Still, as the linked article notes, if this holds up throughout the year, Italian cigarette sales will be at their lowest level for the past thirty years.
