NZ Ups the Anti

NZ joined the first wave of countries to sign the United Nations anti-tobacco treaty on June 16. The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control aims to curb tobacco advertising and sponsorship, limit the use of misnomers such as “low-tar” and “light,” and place further restrictions on public smoking. 28 countries have so far ratified the pact, which needs at least 40 signatories to come into force.
