New Zealand will ban the purchase of cigarettes and other tobacco products to prevent the next generation from smoking.
According to the BBC, New Zealand will enact a law next year that prohibits people born after 2008 from buying cigarettes or tobacco products during their lifetime.
According to reports, the decision is part of the anti-smoking campaign announced by the New Zealand Ministry of Health on Thursday.
“We want to ensure that young people never start smoking,” said New Zealand Minister of Health, Dr. Ayesha Varal.
New Zealand’s doctors and other health professionals welcomed the global reforms.
On the other hand, the actions of the New Zealand government caused different reactions from the local people.
According to reports, some people say this is a good move, because many young people are addicted to drugs at this time, but some people emphasize that this decision may contribute to the black market of tobacco. ۔
