The bill will make it impossible for smokers to put non-smokers at risk.
The new bill is centred on four new legislative provisions:
- The removal of enclosed smoking areas.
- Regulations around the use of e-cigarettes
- Plain packaged cigarette boxes with pictorial warnings.
- The removal of cigarette vending machines and tobacco marketing materials at till points.
About 19% of South Africans light up cigarettes and other tobacco products every day. The provisions in the bill is aimed at protecting the health of the remaining 81% of the population.
