E-cigs exempt as New Zealand brings in world’s first birthdate-based tobacco ban

New Zealand has passed a law introducing a steadily rising smoking age to prevent those currently under the age of 14 from ever being able to legally buy cigarettes.

The country is the first to implement an annually rising smoking age, ensuring cigarettes cannot be sold to anyone born on or after 1st January 2009. The ban will not apply to vaping products.
