20 million Pakistanis are tobacco users and they spend two billion rupees annually on these harmful products. According to a report almost 3.5 million people are killed every year in Pakistan and the trend, if not checked it may push up the figure to 10 million by 2020.
It was shocking to read that 20 million Pakistani s spend two billion rupees on tobacco every year. The amount is very big. It can be controlled if government imposes more taxes on tobacco. This will help in decreasing tobacco users and will also generate more money for government which can be added in health budget.
