So, just something completely different and I’d be interested in people’s thought on this.
It looks like New Zealand is going to bring in a law to ban smoking for anyone born in 2008 or later. Not just your usual ‘you can smoke after you’re 16/18’ but literally - if you’re born after that date, at no point will be it legal for you to buy cigarettes. The idea being that smokers will, literally, just ‘die off’’.
Do you think this will work? Could it be a template for other countries to follow? Or is it a massive assault on people’s rights? Also, how practical is this? Would tourists be exempt?
