Six of ten respondents are in favor of prohibiting the sale of tobacco to anyone born after 2000, according to the newspaper Aftenposten.
The ban on selling both smoke and smokeless tobacco to anyone born after 2000 was originally proposed by the NMA . The aim is that this will pave the way for a tobacco-free generation.
In a survey made by Response Analysis , over 60 percent of respondents say that they are in favor of the proposal, while 31 percent are negative.
Health Minister Bent Høie (H) told Aftenposten that the government is not considering raising the age limit for buying tobacco. Labor does not support the proposal either.
