A decline in New Zealand’s national smoking rate has seen small business representatives call on the Australian Government to implement a similar vaping consumer model.

The New Zealand Government’s annual health update showed the national smoking rate had dropped from 13.7 per cent to 10.9 per cent, following the legalisation of nicotine containing vaping products to be sold in retail stores in 2020. [...] Theo Foukkare, AACS CEO, said the New Zealand model shows that by offering consumers access to nicotine containing e-cigarettes and vaping products more people will come off tobacco.
