Monaco’s Push for Stricter Smoking Regulations: Minors’ Access and Disposable E-cigarettes in the Spotlight

Monaco is readying measures to protect minors from becoming cigarette smokers and taking aim at disposable e-cigarettes.

Other countries are also considering new measures needed to protect young people from tobacco. Some of the debates internationally argue for the minimum legal age for access to tobacco products as 21 or even 25 years. The argument goes that this would reduce smoking initiation substantially, reduce the prevalence of smoking, improve health across the lifespan, improve the outcome of many teenage pregnancies and save lives.

Monaco’s Rugby Sevens team brought an electrifying performance to the In Extenso Rugby Sevens Championship in Paris, only to be stopped just short of the podium. The tournament unfolded on October 23, 2023, and the Monégasque athletes clashed with the reigning champions, the Baabaas Sevens, in a nail-biting semi-final showdown. Ultimately, they claimed the fourth position, leaving fans on the edge of their seats.

This year’s competition presented a daunting challenge for the Red and Whites, who had triumphed in the 2022 French 7-a-side rugby championship. In the lead-up to the final stage, their coach, Jérémy Aicardi, had expressed a burning desire in the Press to clinch victory in this season’s tournament. Despite fielding a squad brimming with top-tier talents, including the likes of Branco du Preez and the recent addition of Terry Kennedy, the Monégasque rugby players fell just short of reaching the coveted final stage.
