Clear out of old cigarette stock?
It is illegal to sell cigarettes without plain packaging from this weekend. Jason Morrison says it is stupid policy with old stock to be sold by weekend or it gets thrown out. Small business wears the costs.

Sexist name-calling has taken Federal Politics to a new low. A federal Labor MP has sparked renewed debate about sexism in politics, after calling Deputy Opposition leader Julie Bishop a "narcissistic bimbo".
Housing in Sydney is now the most affordable it's been in a decade. Two Murrays reveal how the RBA is tipped to cut rates twice, in the coming months. Is it time for first-time homebuyers to enter the market?
Green packs, red packs, black packs, purple packs, pink packs, baby shit yellow packs, whats the difference?? People will still be buying cigs regardless. These stupid idiots, Labor morons, undoubtably do not know what they are doing. Just bloody BAN POISONOUS CIGS altogether, how easy and effective is that...juliarrr Thursday 29 November, 2012 - 10:11 PM
Another stupid Nicola Roxon Laborparty /greens/turncoats piece of legislation. What should have occurred was a sunset clause or phasing in of the new policy. Simply put for old stock to sold off first after which the plain green packets with the same sickening photos on them can then be introduced.Luigi T Cassimatis B.Ec Thursday 29 November, 2012 - 2:03 PM
How stupid are these lawmakers here in Aussie. Honestly, it isn't rocket science to know that something like this must be phased in gradually.Ben Thursday 29 November, 2012 - 11:45 AM
Business owners would have had to have had their heads up their backsides if they were unaware that cigarettes NOT in plain packaging CAN NOT be sold from December onward. Jason is obviously unaware the stock control is any everyday activity in business. Many products have 'best by dates' and 'use by dates', and this is no different.James W Thursday 29 November, 2012 - 9:12 AM
