A bold plan to end smoking in Australia has flagged prescription cigarette sales among measures aimed at slashing tobacco usage.
The University of Queensland study said Australia's smoking prevalence stands at just under 15 per cent, but a detailed road map is needed to reduce that figure to zero.
Proposals by the Centre for Research Excellence on Achieving the Tobacco Endgame (CREATE) include reducing the number of tobacco retailers and restricting sales to particular outlets such as pharmacies.
