New Decree Increases Purchase Tax on Smoking Products, Promoting Healthier Habits and a Supportive Environment for All

The Knesset Approves: Warning Images of Smoking Damage to be Printed on Tobacco Products and Cigarettes

The finance minister recently signed a decree to increase the purchase tax on smoking products, resulting in higher prices for cigarettes, electronic cigarette filler, and rolling tobacco. This decision was made after a contentious debate in the Knesset during a non-smoking day, which highlighted the importance of prevention. The discussion emphasized the social and educational message behind the bill, noting that a person’s illness can impact not only themselves but also their environment, family, and friends.

The increase in purchase tax also affected unprocessed tobacco, vaping tobacco, and tobacco heating devices. This move signaled a broader effort to discourage smoking in the country. By implementing these measures, the government hopes to promote healthier habits and create a more supportive environment for all members of the community. The aim is to address the impact of smoking on individuals and society as a whole while prioritizing health and well-being.
