Eight-year jail term for breaking planned law on plain packaging for tobacco

Anyone who breaks new laws imposing plain packaging on all tobacco products could face up to eight years in jail, according to the text of Minister for Health James Reilly’s proposed legislation.

The Public Health (Standardized Packaging of Tobacco) Bill 2014, published on Friday, provides for the imposition of penalties both on individuals and “body corporates”.

The legislation will not take full effect until May 2017 to allow for the dissipation of existing supplies of tobacco products bearing manufacturers’ names and logos.
