France Preparing to Introduce Plain Packaging for Cigarettes

France is preparing to take some strict actions to bring a decline in the number of smokers. It will introduce plain packaging for cigarettes and will levy ban on e-cigarettes in specific public places.

On Thursday, the French Health Minister Marisol Touraine announced the proposal. The law will be similar to the one introduced in Australia two years back. In Australia, the step has brought a drop in the tobacco consumption. Smoking would be banned in playgrounds and in cars having children under the age of 12, announced Touraine.
