Knesset Approves Printing Images of Smoking Damage on Tobacco Products and Cigarettes

Recently, the finance minister approved a decree proposed by Bezalel Smotrich to increase the purchase tax on various smoking products. As a result, the cost of a pack of cigarettes rose by two shekels, electronic cigarette filler increased by one shekel per milliliter, and rolling tobacco saw a price hike of 13 shekels per gram. The purchase tax on unprocessed tobacco, cigarettes, other vaping tobacco, and tobacco heating devices also went up.

The bill to increase taxes on smoking products was the outcome of a contentious debate held during a non-smoking day in the Knesset. It is crucial for us to focus on prevention in order to improve public health. By implementing these measures, we hope to send a strong social and educational message about the risks of smoking, not only to the individual but also to their environment, family, and friends.

In addition to the health benefits of discouraging smoking, the increase in purchase tax aims to make these harmful products less accessible and affordable, ultimately reducing the prevalence of smoking in the population. It is important to prioritize public health and take proactive steps to address the negative impact of smoking on individuals and society as a whole.
