    New Zealand imposes lifetime ban on youth buying tobacco

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) – New Zealand on Tuesday passed into law a unique plan to phase out tobacco smoking by imposing a lifetime ban on young people buying cigarettes.

    The law states that tobacco can’t ever be sold to anybody born on or after January 1, 2009. It means the minimum age for buying cigarettes will keep going up and up.

    More details in Wednesday’s Borneo Bulletin.
