(05.04 mc) a 2012 report from the u. s. surgeon general stated: "another common practice is strategically locating tobacco-related marketing materials where young children will be exposed to them. tobacco industry executives acknowledge that products and advertising should be placed at eye level (pollay 2007), but in california, 48% of stores had at least one cigarette marketing item at or below 3 feet from the floor (feighery et al. 2001)." it was also noted that 25% of cigarette displays were next to candy. in addition, a national study found that about one-third of the stores had tobacco ads at low heights. after california banned counter displays, some stores place cigarettes in transparent displays so product brands could still be seen. why did some stores use transparent units to display the cigarettes? (3 points) to comply with the new rules while still encouraging cigarette purchases via visual exposure to ensure children and minors are not exposed to cigarettes and their eye-catching packaging to minimize exposure to humidity, extending the shelf life of the cigarettes' tobacco to reduce the occurrence of shoplifting, since cigarettes are high-revenue items
Children would probably think that the cigarettes are some kind of candy and would try consume it. To prevent this, cigarettes are not displayed on counters. It cannot be the 3rd option because it is not very logical. It cannot be the 2nd option because people would still purchase cigarettes even if they are not on counters. It cannot be the 4th option because it is not sensible. So, the final answer is:
To comply with the new rules while still encouraging cigarette purchases via visual exposure.
Please give me a Thanks and rate me for my explanation. (I just took the HOPE test and got the right answer by the way.)
To ensure children and minors are not exposed to cigarettes and their eye-catching packaging
Counter displays of tobacco products is a law implemented to protect the public and especially underage people from buying and consuming products proved to be harmful and addictive. Throughout the years, advertising of such products has been severely limited. Instead it has been replaced by campaigns that warn people of the dangers surrounding smoking. In a similar manner, Californian authorities try to limit the exposure of tobacco products to the public and especially children and adolescents.
