Tobacco vending machines to be outlawed in Israel next month

Starting January 1, the sale of cigarettes from indoor and outdoor vending machines will be outlawed throughout the country. The Health Ministry is working towards enforcing the law, which was originally passed in August 2011 but whose implementation was postponed until the beginning of 2014 because the vending companies said they “needed time to adjust,” The Jerusalem Post has learned.

By prohibiting the sale of cigarettes to adults and to minors – who by law are not allowed to purchase cigarettes – the ministry thus carries out its obligation regarding vending machines to the World Health Organization, whose Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) it approved and then ratified.
