Summary of "Lower smoking rates and increased perceived harm of cigarettes among French adults one year after comprehensive tobacco control measures."

France has high smoking rates, and recently intensified tobacco control policies spearheaded by the introduction of plain tobacco packaging (PP), and an increase in graphic health warnings (GHW). We examine smoking and e-cigarettes use rates, as well as smoking-related perceptions before (2016) and one year after (2017) comprehensive tobacco control measures.
