Indonesia Keeps Tobacco on Top

The sheer power of Indonesia’s tobacco industry has revealed itself once again through prohibitive new restrictions on e-cigarettes. Trade minister Enggartiasto Lukita suggested Indonesians can skirt the new rules if they “become regular smokers.”
Indonesia, known for executing non-violent drug offenders, is the sole Asia-Pacific country not to sign the WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Tobacco-linked illnesses kill 200,000 each year in Indonesia, where over 5 million children smoke.
