New Zealand backs down on smoking ban

New Zealand’s new prime minister, Christopher Luxon, has rolled back the former prime minister’s plan to gradually ban smoking in the country.
The smoking ban law would have come into effect in the middle of next year, including banning the sale of cigarettes to anyone born after 2008.
The number of outlets was reduced from 6,000 to 600, and the bill also targeted other measures, such as significant reductions in the legal amount of nicotine in tobacco products.
The New Zealand prime minister said this would revive the black market.
