Will Aussie’s ‘Fuit-less’ Decision Be ‘Fruitful’ in Curbing Smoking?
The New South Wales government in Australia has taken steps to curb youth smoking. They have proposed to ban the tobacco products containing fruit-flavoured addictives which are imported mostly from Asia and Europe.

New South Wales Assistant Health Minister Verity Firth said that these cigarettes are called peach or strawberry and they tend to glow in the dark under disco lights. Since they look and taste like confectionary they appeal to and are targeted towards children and teenagers. 

The ban is to go into effect in mid-January.
