Recently, the finance minister signed a decree to increase the purchase tax on smoking products, resulting in a rise in prices for items such as cigarettes, electronic cigarette filler, and rolling tobacco. This decision came after a controversial discussion in the Knesset on a non-smoking day, emphasizing the importance of prevention. It was noted that a person’s illness can impact not only themselves but also their environment, family, and friends, highlighting the social and educational message behind the bill.

The increase in purchase tax also affected unprocessed tobacco, vaping tobacco, and tobacco heating devices, signaling a broader effort to discourage smoking in the country. This move aims to address the impact of smoking on individuals and society as a whole, emphasizing the need to prioritize health and well-being. By implementing these measures, the government hopes to promote healthier habits and create a more supportive environment for all members of the community.
