Kiwis Breathe Easy

NZ has joined Ireland and Norway in banning the smoking of tobacco in bars, casinos and restaurants. “The 75% of NZers who do not smoke have the right to a smokefree environment, and we congratulate the Government for passing this legislation in the face of significant opposition,” says NZ Medical Association Chairperson Dr Trisha Briscoe. “This legislation will help smokers to give up, and will help them to stay smokefree by providing social environments that don’t encourage them to smoke.”
