They are often considered as dangerous and aggressive which in turn increases the social distance.Is there an opportunity for pharma to do more?

Toxic Black-Market Cigarettes Fuel Mesothelioma Concerns
The Australian government’s plan to see around 300,000 people quit smoking by 2020 has backfired. A tobacco tax hike of a 12.5 percent over a four-year span has driven the price of cigarettes to $40 a pack and rising. As a result, avid smokers are turning to illegally imported cigarettes to fuel their habit. The trend has resulted in the emergence of a flourishing black-market industry linked to organized crime. Up to 14.3 percent of tobacco consumed in Australia comes through the black market, with a wide range of brands and counterfeit imitations sold “under the counter” by shop owners and other individ...

We think of the millions who have fought, who have come back with injuries, and those who died serving their countries. But the numbers we rarely think about: How...
