Australia was the first country to ban branded cigarette packs and ever since they’ve been taken off the shelves, the country’s been watched for signs of success.

The reasons for the rise in the purchase of tobacco, the country’s first increase in five years, is currently unclear – but as reported in The Telegraph, experts believe that people are turning to rolling tobacco to combat price increases and can therefore afford to buy more, as cigarette sales have slightly decreased and tobacco sales have increased.

Law now requires that all tobacco packets display graphic images of smoking-related diseases, and all logos and branding are banned.
