Written By : Allen Lockington Lautoka. Congratulations to the Tobacco Control Unit (TCU) on its actions. They now have a legislation and it was a long time coming and guess who was the first to get caught, children of all people. Some parents will want their children to be cautioned the first time they are caught. Why? I would have thought that parents would be the first to want their children punished.
To teach them a lesson of course.
However, only the Suva Branch of the TCU has been in the news. I believe there is a TCU in Lautoka. Have they been active is there any data on their activities.
Why only Suva is being shown in the news papers, haven’t they caught anyone in the West yet. I’m sure the public would like to know.
On the flip side of things we go all out to ban tobacco products, it is illegal to sell to minors, tobacco products is harmful and contains poison, yet we go full steam ahead on production.
The tobacco company is currently doing a promotion.
I bet the TCU didn’t know that.
In the end we are only fooling ourselves.
