I am writting to you today with the concerns that i have about the plain packaging that you are trying to implement into our society. For one i thought that Australia was a free country and that all Australians had choices in there lives of what products that they wanted to buy. Also have you thought of the implications of the young people in the workforce of how confusing that plain packaging for them is going to be when they take longer to find the right brand that the customer wants. and as we all know everyone is in a hurry these days so i am sure that you would not like your children to be abused by some angry customer , all because of plain packaging. Also as being a tax paying citizen i cant understand why you would waste so much money on something that will not even lower the percentage of the people who do smoke as it will not even make a difference to them as we found out with the packaging you did with all the pictures on them. Also we as Australians have choices be right or wrong but you are taking our rights away as to choose what products that we would like to see on our shelves, whats next will it be our food and water because you dont like the way it looks.I hope that our choices stays ours and that you do not waste so much money on this ridicules idea , and spend the money where it is really needed .
