Portable Cigarette Machine

Republic Tobacco has launched the new Swift Portable 100MM Cigarette Machine. Like its name, making cigarettes is a breeze!  Portable and lightweight, it packs into a carry-on bag or suitcase without weighing down luggage. It even fits in a glove box, keeping smokers make-your-own (M-Y-O) ready and able to inject cigarettes, even on the go. The shiny red machine features a built-in grip handle, slip resistant bottom and steady-grip crank arm design, and includes a tobacco tamper.  It works with any 100MM filter tubes and fresh tobacco. Cigarettes are made in three easy steps and one swift motion.  Fill the tobacco chamber, place a tube on the nozzle, pull the handle and the result is a perfect cigarette! The Swift 100MM Cigarette Machine is individually boxed and sold in counter display boxes of four. It instantly displays in a small footprint on the counter or a shelf.  Display units are packed six per case.

Cigarette vending machines banned near schools

Cigarette vending machines banned near schools

Operators of machines within 1km of schools to be fined NIS 226,000; complete ban will take effect in two years.

As of Wednesday, December 21, it is against the law to install cigarette vending machines within 1,000 meters of schools and other educational institutions. Starting on January 1, 2014, the use of tobacco vending machines will be completely barred.

The delay for the complete prohibition resulted from objections by vending machine companies and others, who said they would lose money and needed time to make up for their losses, although proponents of an immediate ban said vending machines for cigarettes could easily be changed to sell anything from stamps and envelopes at the post office to healthy foods and toys.

Last May, the government decided on the basis of Health Ministry recommendations to adopt a national program for reducing smoking and damage from tobacco, especially among children and youths. One of the regulations was to bar tobacco vending machines in two years and those within a kilometer of educational institutions now.

The ministry said it plans to enforce the rules against vending machine owners who violate the law; the fine will be a prohibitive NIS 226,000. Until now, although cigarettes cannot be sold legally to minors, any child could buy them from vending machines.
