University of Queensland along with National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in Australia, in a bid to eradicate the menace of cigarette smoking in the country, is exploring new ways for people to kick the butt!
Newdaily reported, The prescription model could mean cigarettes are only available through a doctor’s note, and available from a chemist ? but a leading tobacco control scholar says that will never happen.
People are likely to be made to buy cigarettes with a prescription or from a pharmacy in Australia, which happens to be the global tobacco control leader.
Australia is a global tobacco control leader and has been at the cutting edge of many new policies, Associate Professor Coral Gartner, CREATE director, told 7News.
The research centre would direct their efforts on identifying an endgame target and the required timeframe to achieve their target. Also, various strategies including reducing the number of tobacco retailers and restricting sales to particular suppliers would also be explored.
Also, smoking would be prohibited to people who would be born after a certain year.
“Cigarettes will never go on prescription because there is no medical benefit from getting access to tobacco, Simon Chapman AO, Emeritus Professor in the School Public Health at the University of Sydney, said.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
