Icelandis considering banning the sale of cigarettes and making them a prescription-only product.

The parliament in Reykjavik is to debate a proposal that would outlaw the sale of cigarettes in normal shops. Only pharmacies would be allowed to dispense them – initially to those aged 20 and up, and eventually only to those with a valid medical certificate.

That doesn’t mean this idea will go anywhere except being on a "bucket list" for Anti’s. We all know a doctor is not going to prescribe tobacco but he will prescribe smoking cessation devices.
