|Title:||Enforcing law on tobacco sales to minors: getting the question and action right||Authors:||Tutt, Douglas||Issue Date:||Nov-2008||Source:||Volume 19, Issue 11-12, pp. 208 - 211||Journal title:||New South Wales Public Health Bulletin||Abstract:||There is a substantial history of health-related law in Australia, but only recently has this included a significant amount of state regulation pertaining to tobacco promotion, sale and public use. The important question is: under what circumstances do regulation and law enforcement work? Rigorous, energetic, long-term local law enforcement on the supply of tobacco to minors demonstrates success in preventing uptake. A model for success combines education, enforcement and publicity; a model used to some effect in alcohol law. Future directions in regulation might include on-the-spot penalties; ensuring the law is simple and has community support; striving for sufficient resources, enthusiasm and skills; and making the tobacco retail industry pay some of the costs of regulating that industry.||URI:||https://elibrary.cclhd.health.nsw.gov.au/cclhdjspui/handle/1/1412||Pubmed:||https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19126394||Publicaton type:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Public Health|
