Scotland May Raise Legal Age For Buying Cigarettes

Plans are on the anvil to raise the legal age for buying cigarettes in Scotland to 18 years. Dr Laurence Gruer, director of public health for NHS Scotland has led a team of experts //who are to propose a change in the policy to the Scottish Executive.

Health Minister Andy Kerr said that such a move would ensure that young Scots do not take up the habit. "We must get a strong message across to young Scots about the dangers of smoking. We want to deter people from taking up a habit which leads to thousands of deaths each year," he added.
