Banning Tobacco displays

As a non-smoker I was rather pleased with the ban on smoking in pubs. It made my life a lot nicer when I went out in the evenings. However the news that Tobacco displays set to be banned is just plain stupid.
I’ve never smoked, but that’s not to say I’ve never purchased a pack of cigarettes. And the one thing that I do know is that I can spend five minutes going “A pack of Rothmans”, “The blue and red ones”, “Up a bit”, “No to the right”, “Just a bit higher”, “20s not 10s” and fingers waving over the shop.
If they are going to be under the counter it’s going to be a lot harder.
