Knesset Approves Printing Images of Smoking Damage on Tobacco Products and Cigarettes

The finance minister recently approved a decree to increase the purchase tax on various smoking products, following a contentious debate held during a non-smoking day in the Knesset. This bill aims to improve public health by sending a strong social and educational message about the risks of smoking, not only to individuals but also to their environment, family, and friends.

The cost of a pack of cigarettes rose by two shekels, electronic cigarette filler increased by one shekel per milliliter, and rolling tobacco saw a price hike of 13 shekels per gram. The purchase tax on unprocessed tobacco, cigarettes, other vaping tobacco, and tobacco heating devices also went up.

By implementing these measures, we hope to discourage smoking and make these harmful products less accessible and affordable. This will ultimately reduce the prevalence of smoking in the population and prioritize public health. It is important for us to take proactive steps to address the negative impact of smoking on individuals and society as a whole.
