World Smokefree Day: Tobacco more available in some Auckland suburbs than bread and milk

People living in Auckland's most deprived areas have more opportunities to buy tobacco than they do bread and milk.

A recent Cancer Society survey found there were 18 places to buy tobacco products on Manurewa's main street in south Auckland. Nearby Ōtāhuhu had 17.

By contrast, there were just three in the more affluent area of Remuera and two in St Heliers in central Auckland.
