The ACT Government is committed to protecting the public from known and potential harms associated with smoking products, including tobacco and electronic cigarettes.
Tobacco smoking is responsible for the death of up to two-thirds of Australian smokers aged 45 years and over and is a primary risk factor for various cancers, respiratory and cardiovascular disease and other illnesses.
Smoking tobacco also harms the people around you. It contains thousands of chemicals that are toxic and cause cancer.
Please contact the Health Protection Service on 02 5124 9700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The ACT Government also welcomes community feedback on the regulation of tobacco, smoking products and smoke-free issues. Please see the YourSay website for more information.
