How do you feel about the legal age to buy smokes, raised to 21?
How do you feel about not being allowed to smoke in your own apartment, or condo?
Well the federal government is considering it, to help try and drop the smoking number sin Canada to under 5% by 2035. As of 2015..the number is around 13%.
This all comes from a consultation paper from Health Canada, as they try to create a new National Tobacco Control Strategy.
Along with raising the age limit, they also have suggestions on banning public smoking and vaping.
Those proposed spots are
– college and university campuses
– public parks
– apartments and condos
That last one is gonna get people up in arms, with the suggestion that the government is trying to tell you what to do in your own home.
Remember this might not happen, but it seems like it’s on the table.
