Denmark Proposes Cigarette Sale Ban to People Born after 2010.
Written by News Room on March 16, 2022
Denmark unveiled plans to ensure that future generations are tobacco-free, and is considering banning the sale of cigarettes and other nicotine products to anyone born after 2010.
Health Minister Magnus Heunicke told reporters that their hope is that all people born in 2010 and later will never start smoking or using nicotine-based products.
Currently, Danes must be 18 years old to buy cigarettes or e-cigarettes.
Smoking is the main cause of cancer in the Nordic country of 5.8 million people and is responsible for 13,600 deaths per year.
