Associate Minister of Health Jenny Salesa set to introduce legislation banning most flavoured e-cigarettes
Associate Minister of Health Jenny Salesa has today announced that the government will introduce legislation banning most flavoured e-cigarettes, with the exception of tobacco, menthol and mint.
The new legislation also includes heavy restrictions on marketing, treating e-cigarettes in a similar way to tobacco, with bans on advertising, social media and discount pricing.
If you feel that this goes against New Zealand achieving the Smoke-free 2025 goal, or will impact you in any way, please let the government know your views by sending an email to Associate Minister of Health Jenny Salesa: firstname.lastname@example.org and Health Minister David Clark: email@example.com
