CANADA CAN BE A GLOBAL LEADER IN REDUCING THE HARM CAUSED BY SMOKING, BUT IT WOULD REQUIRE SOME RULES TO CHANGE.
When a cigarette is lit it produces smoke, which contains high levels of harmful chemicals – which are the primary cause of smoking-related diseases.
Smoke-free products*and other vaping products, eliminate smoke and can significantly reduce the levels of harmful chemicals.
Legislation should start better differentiating between cigarettes and smoke-free alternatives by introducing a risk-proportionate regulatory framework. There are notable differences between these products and regulations should reflect this.
A SMOKE-FREE FUTURE FOR CANADA IS POSSIBLE. TO REACH THAT FUTURE, LEGISLATIVE CHANGE IS A NECESSARY STEP. LET'S GET THERE TOGETHER.
THERE’S NO DOUBT CANADA CAN BE A GLOBAL LEADER IN REDUCING THE HARM CAUSED BY SMOKING, BUT IT REQUIRES A CHANGE TO EXISTING LEGISLATION, WHICH TENDS TO TREAT TOBACCO AND NICOTINE PRODUCTS THE SAME. THIS HAS GOT TO CHANGE. GETTING INVOLVED STARTS WITH BEING INFORMED.
THE WORLD IS CHANGING - IT’S TIME TO CHANGE WITH IT.
*Smoke-free products are not risk free and provide nicotine which is addictive.
