New Zealand smokers overwhelmingly support removing the nicotine from cigarettes to make them less addictive, a national survey has found.

Eighty per cent of smokers and recent quitters questioned as part of an International Tobacco Control (ITC) study say they would support reducing the level of nicotine in cigarettes and tobacco - as long as nicotine is available in alternative products. The US Food and Drug Administration has proposed reducing nicotine levels in cigarettes to minimal levels to make them less addictive.
