The CEO of Philip Morris International (PMI) Jacek Olczak, says that cigarettes should be placed in the same category as petrol cars, which are to be outlawed as of 2030.
The chief executive said the company can envision “the world without cigarettes … and actually, the sooner it happens, the better it is for everyone’, and has called on the UK government to ban cigarettes within a decade, alongside petrol cars.
He added that the move would end the confusion regarding safer nicotine alternatives, which some smokers still believe are “worse than cigarettes.”
“Give them a choice of smoke-free alternatives … with the right regulation and information it can happen 10 years from now in some countries. You can solve the problem once and forever,” said the CEO as quoted by the Sunday Telegraph.
