More than 1,100 Cumbrian children between the ages of 10 and 14 are regular smokers.
Have your say
More than 1,000 children in Cumbria smoke regularly - the rest just smoke when they're having a drink.
Does anyone ever stop and think that there are already stringent laws on youngsters using illegal substances (including alcohol for the under 18's) and yet they are all widely used and abused...and largely accepted by our liberal society. If we can't stop youngsters using these sunstances with the full weight of the law, why do we think the colour and patterns on cigarette packets will make any difference?
Me - yeah as if that will work. See "prohibition, America c1920s"
