Australia bans vapers and puts warning message on every cigarette

In future, the warning messages currently printed on tobacco packs will also be present individually on each cigarette in Australia.

The tobacco industry is preparing to suffer a serious blow in Australian soil. The Australian Government has decided to extend the warning messages that currently find their way onto tobacco packs and those contained in them to every cigarette. The drastic measure is part of a drastic offensive with which the authorities of the oceanic country seek to drastically reduce the number of smokers within its borders.

In a parliamentary session held on Wednesday, Australian Health Minister Mark Butler announced that he would Ban the sale of flavored cigarettes and “slim” cigarettes, «This is how the so fashionable ‘slim’ cigarettes will disappear. And cigarettes that are mentholated or flavored to make the tobacco more palatable will be wasted as well,” Butler said.

The Australian Minister of Health has also taken more restrictive measures against the tobacco industry. In future, the warning messages currently printed on tobacco packs will also be present on each cigarette individually. According to the minister, slogans such as “Smoking kills” and images warning of diseases potentially caused by tobacco are out of date.

Australia also wants to ban vapers

However, Butler leaves open the question of what exactly will be the warning message that will soon be landing on each cigarette individually., Australia would be the first country to take such a measure anyway.

The aim of this offensive is to reduce the smoking rate, currently estimated at 12%, to less than 5% in 2030. “We want to prevent new generations from developing nicotine addiction,” Butler insisted. In Spain, where such drastic measures are not expected (at least for now), the proportion of smokers is paradoxically much higher than in the antipodes and reaches 22%.

Butler had already announced in early May that he intended to crack down on electronic cigarettes and Ban the import of all “vapers” that are not intended for pharmaceutical use, In future, electronic cigarettes, which some experts describe as more addictive than heroin and cocaine, will only be available on Australian soil with a prescription.
