New Decree Aims to Promote Healthier Habits and Create a Smoke-Free Future in Israel

The Knesset Approves: Warning Images of Smoking Damage to be Printed on Tobacco Products and Cigarettes

In an effort to promote healthier habits and create a more supportive environment for all members of the community, the finance minister recently signed a decree to increase the purchase tax on smoking products. This decision came after a controversial discussion in the Knesset on a non-smoking day, emphasizing the importance of prevention. It was noted that a person’s illness can impact not only themselves but also their environment, family, and friends, highlighting the social and educational message behind the bill.

The increase in purchase tax affected not only cigarettes but also electronic cigarette filler and rolling tobacco. However, it also impacted unprocessed tobacco, vaping tobacco, and tobacco heating devices, signaling a broader effort to discourage smoking in the country.

This move aimed to address the impact of smoking on individuals and society as a whole. By implementing these measures, the government hopes to promote healthier habits and create a more supportive environment for all members of the community. It is clear that this decision was made with great consideration for both public health and social responsibility.
