Ban roll-your-own tobacco – expert

Roll-your-own tobacco is ''more dangerous'' than factory-made cigarettes and should be banned, says Professor Richard Edwards, head of public health at the University of Otago's Wellington campus.

Prof Edwards said roll-your-own tobacco was less natural and at least as harmful as factory-rolled tobacco and interventions were needed to encourage roll-your-own smokers to quit.

The interventions included mass media campaigns and pack warnings to correct misinterpretations that roll-your-own cigarettes were less hazardous and more natural.
