Michael Bloomberg seeks to ban cigarette displays

A new measure would require stores to keep tobacco products hidden in cabinets, drawers, under counters or behind curtains

Apparently unfazed by the recent defeat of his sugary drink ban, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is now pushing for a law that would require stores to conceal tobacco products.

Under the law, which Bloomberg will reportedly introduce to the City Council this week, stores would have to hide tobacco products, including cigarettes, behind a curtain, or store them in cabinets, drawers or under counters.
