This article will bring you to the cheapest places to buy cigarettes in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice. The price of tobacco influences its use. Bigger taxes and higher prices, in general, are the important factors, especially for the younger population. That is why the heaviest health issues caused by tobacco consumption are observed in low and middle-income countries, where the use of tobacco is also much higher among the younger population. Certainly, smokers are fed up and bombarded with the information on the harmful impacts of tobacco on health. Surely the warning signs about the impact of tobacco on health on each cigarette pack were irritating at the beginning, but now it is just an integral part of the pack design.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the cheapest places to buy cigarettes in the world from their list.
The first one is Djibouti. Cigarettes have actually become more affordable in the period between 2008 and 2016 in Djibouti despite the government efforts to lower the tobacco and cigarette use and therefore is one of the cheapest places to buy cigarettes in the world. Smoking is forbidden at the most of the public places excluding restaurants and bars. The most sold cigarette brand in Djibouti is Benson & Hedges with the price of $1.13. The second country should be Kyrgyzstan. As a middle-income country, Kyrgyzstan is showing the pattern of the countries of the similar economic status regarding the cigarette and tobacco use. That means that the pack of cigarettes is affordable, being only $0.86 for the pack of Winston as the most sold brand in Kyrgyzstan. Smoking is forbidden in the more official places such as hospitals, government buildings educational buildings, but not in offices and some working places, and neither in bars and restaurants. THe last country on our list now is Liberia.
