If you walk into a shop today you may notice something missing – there will be no cigarette displays.

From today, all tobacco products have to be out of sight.

It's just one of a string of legislative changes to the tobacco industry including tax hikes on cigarettes.

Ben Youdan spoke to Firstline’s Rachel Smalley – watch the interview.
