CANDIES RESEMBLING TOBACCO PRODUCTS ARE BANNED UNDER SOLOMON ISLANDS TOBACCO LAW
Quoting an extract from Island Sun newspaper – 8 September 2018
“Dr. Kenilorea, SI’s NCD Director, recently said candies resembling tobacco products or use tobacco brand names or designs are banned under the Tobacco Law. He said this is because they promote and normalise smoking behaviour, which adds to the worries of the many parents who came out calling the authorities on it.
“The NCD Director said the product is just one of the ways that the tobacco industry markets its products and encourages children to become smokers, and together, the country needs to take a strong stand together against such tactics.
“Protecting our children should be everyone’s number one priority. We urge the public to join us and take a stand against tobacco, and against any products that promote smoking,” Kenilorea added.”
