Australian smokers can continue to dress up their plain tobacco packs after a new range of stickers was found not to be in breach of the new law.
Since December 1, new packets have had to feature standardised text and a uniform olive green colour, as well as much larger graphic health warnings.
Sales of cigarette cases have jumped since the ban as smokers attempt to cover up the packets, and late last year a Gold Coast company called Box Wraps introduced a new range of stickers which feature the Australian flag and the slogan “It’s your box, it’s your choice”.
The Department of Health and Ageing immediately investigated, but this week found that they were not breaking the law.
Box Wraps general manager Anthony Do Rozario told the Australian press that he expected his business to boom.
