Date:

Saying that New Zealand already has a vaping framework, Ardern acknowledged that vaping is a tool to quit smoking that is used by people successfully

Talking about a recent legislation that will bar people aged 14 and under to legally buy tobacco, the New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern acknowledged that vaping can be an effective tool to help smokers quit.

The New Zealand prime minister said that continuing to raise tobacco prices will not continue to help people stop smoking and that is why there is a need for alternative ways. She said that the best way to reduce smoking rate would be if people don’t take up smoking in the first place.

“And if they are smoking, they have to find safe alternatives and ways for them to quit. And that’s what this is all about,” said Ardern.

Saying that New Zealand already has a vaping framework, Ardern acknowledged that vaping is a tool to quit smoking that is used by people successfully.

“And that actually enables us to push ahead with further activity route to reduce down smoking because there is an alternative that works very successfully for people in order to stop smoking. We know that vaping is making a difference for those now in order to stop smoking. And so it is an important tool,” said the New Zealand PM.
