New Zealand prepares for life ban on youth smoking

WELLINGTON: The New Zealand government has decided to legislate to ban young people from smoking for life.

According to a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), legislation will be enacted next year to bar the new generation from buying tobacco for life. Young people born after 2008 will not be able to buy cigarettes and tobacco for life.

The move is part of Health Minister Ayesha Varal’s crackdown on smoking. “We want to make sure that our young people never smoke,” he said.
Health experts and doctors across the country have welcomed the decision to pass a law banning young people from smoking.

Some experts have warned that the government’s move could lead to a black market in tobacco in the country, which would require customs officials to tighten border controls.
