    Kiwis are being called on to back major changes - to reduce smoking-related deaths

    Kiwis are being called on to back major changes - to reduce smoking-related deaths


    With less than four years until the Smokefree 2025 deadline, the Government's proposing a new approach.

    It could include very low nicotine levels in cigarettes, and gradually increasing the age at which you can buy tobacco.

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says we lose up to 12 New Zealanders day each day because of smoking and secondhand smoke.
