New EU anti-smoking regulations hope to drastically reduce number of smokers

  • 2.4M people will quit smoking, if new European Union anti-smoking legislation proves to be as effective as regulators hope. The new rules ban the sale of any pack that carries less than 20 cigarettes, to guarantee packaging is large enough to display newly-mandated warning messages, and brands are also now forbidden from using statements that might imply their product is healthier than other cigarette. Flavored cigarettes, including menthol, will be banned across the EU, and there will be new maximum-concentration regulations for the nicotine cartridges in e-cigarettes. The rules wll come into force this May, and must be adopted by member states within two years. source
