epa03362016 A generic plain packaged cigarette pack is displayed during a press conference at Parliament House in Canberra, Australia, 15 August 2012. The High Court of Australia today rejected the legal challenge by tobacco companies against Australia's plain packaging of tobacco laws. Australia's highest court ruled on 15 August 2012 it was legal for the government to make tobacco companies package cigarettes without prominent branding. The High Court found the latest anti-smoking legislation did not break laws requiring 'the acquisition of property on just terms'. It was a test case watched in Britain, Canada and New Zealand where there is pressure to follow the lead in further restricting tobacco advertising. World-first laws requiring almost identical olive-green packs with large, graphic health warnings were passed in 2011 and are to take effect in December 2012.

Neuseeland will Einheitsschachteln für Zigaretten

Die Schachteln sollen künftig mit Warnungen vor den Gefahren des Rauchens versehen werden - wie in Australien.

Nach Australien will Neuseeland als zweites Land weltweit unattraktive Einheitsschachteln für alle Zigaretten vorschreiben. Statt mit lockenden Grafiken sollten die Schachteln künftig mit großflächigen Warnungen vor den Gefahren des Rauchens versehen werden, sagte das für Gesundheit zuständige Regierungsmitglied Tariana Turia am Dienstag in Wellington.

Diese Maßnahme nehme "diesen tödlichen Produkten den letzten Rest an Glamour", so die Argumentation. Ein entsprechender Gesetzesentwurf soll laut Turia noch in diesem Jahr vorgelegt werden. Umgesetzt werden soll die Regelung aber erst, wenn über Klagen der Zigarettenindustrie gegen das Gesetz in Australien entschieden worden sei.

Widerstand gewiss

"Zur Zeit tut die Verpackung alles, um die Verbraucher zu betören und den Charme und die Akzeptanz von Zigarettenrauch zu erhöhen", kritisierte Turia. "Eine wenig attraktive Verpackung wird die Realität des Tabaks deutlich machen - eines Produkts, das jedes Jahr 5000 Neuseeländer tötet," ist sich Turia sicher. Die Politikerin rechnet nach eigenen Angaben mit erbittertem Widerstand der Tabakindustrie, ihre Regierung wolle das Vorhaben dennoch vorantreiben.
