Spanish Health wants to raise the price of tobacco

A recent announcement indicates that the Spanish Ministry of Health has plans to get tough on tobacco. On her arrival at the Ministry of Health, Monica Garcia set forth her plan to resurrect an anti-smoking initiative that was initially introduced during Carolina Darias’ tenure as health minister. The move is seen as a bold step towards a healthier nation. This initiative underscores a commitment to enforce stricter regulations on vaping and to extend smoke-free zones to include terraces and other public areas.


24.50% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 9.7 million current smokers in Spain.
