Blog | A Policy and Research Agenda for Roll-Your-Own Tobacco

New Zealand’s Smokefree 2025 goal is now less than ten years away but we are unlikely to achieve this world-leading goal unless the Government introduces innovative new policies that reduce smoking prevalence. Existing measures have tackled different facets of tobacco marketing, with plain packaging reducing a potent form of tobacco marketing and excise tax increases making smoking less affordable. However, tobacco products themselves have received less attention.

In this Public Health Expert blog our tobacco control researchers outline findings from recent studies examining roll-your-own tobacco use and explore potential policy implications.
