Thailand to Impose Graphic Smoking Warnings
Wed Jan 21,11:30 AM
BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand will join Canada, Brazil and Singapore in forcing cigarette makers to put colored graphic health warnings on cigarette packets in a bid to discourage smoking, Health Minister Sudarat Keyuraphan said on Wednesday.
Sudarat said in a statement a ministerial order, to take effect a year from now, would require cigarette packets to carry color pictures and text depicting possible consequences of smoking, including lung cancer, premature aging, and bad breath.
The pictures are to take up half the space of each side of a cigarette packet, with text in both Thai and English.
"Colorful graphic warnings will communicate better than plain text ones," Sudarat said. Tobacco importers or manufacturers who sell packets without graphic warnings will face fines of up to $2,500.
