of 16,000 crowns a year.
It is what it is - extra - going to cost the 41-year-old heavy smoker Jonas Madsen from Odense, that the price of cigarettes from next year, rising to an average of 55 dollars per. package.
For Jonas Madsen, who at the same time is an alcoholic, do not expect to be able to keep up with to smoke even though the price to get a solid blow up after the new year.
And yet - to 60 crowns - from 2022.
"I smoke 60 cigarettes a day, so it's going to cost me insanely on the purse, it here. How can I allow you?" asks Jonas Madsen rhetorical in the direction of S-the government and the supporting parties on Monday evening together hummed the last loop around the bill.
Jonas Madsen, which is sometimes also ‘rolls’ cigarettes at home addition to the ones he buys at the kiosk, is well aware that the price increase is due to the politicians ' hope that especially young people will keep away from the cigarettes.
Still think he's not on, it's going to help much, that the price now goes in the weather. At least not for him personally.
For you will as smoking just find some loopholes, so you can smoke on, he thinks:
"It will just mean that you find something else to get a hold of cheaper cigarettes. It is expensive enough already, and I have no advice to give 45 to 60 dollars extra on the day, so I will have to get someone home from Poland or another eastern european country. Then I can also sell them on and make a little on it," he says.
"There are some people who are going to earn on it here. Just not in Denmark, for the future, the money will be placed abroad instead of, and so goes to the Danish state miss of the charges," adds Jonas Madsen.
Karsten Sunesen Jensen, who is the personal economic advisor of the company Pengeministeriet, says about the upcoming price increase on cigarettes:
"The framework of disability pensioners, benefit claimants and pensioners. They are the ones who smoke the most, and it is with them, all take up the most budget. They get an extra push downwards, because they need to spend more money on cigarettes."
Karsten Sunesen Jensen, confirming that the 41-year-old odenseaner Jonas Madsen is one of them, which inadvertently gets hit by the effect of the bill.
Jonas Madsen does not hide the fact that he already from childhood has been the hereditary burdened when it comes to a penchant for smoking.
He took his first hiv of a cigarette, already when he was just ten years old. And his son Patrick, who is 15, also began to smoke at an early age. He opened his first pack of cigarettes, just as he was filled 11.
"my Whole family smokes, and we have always done. It is, of course, that when the mother and father smoking, so kids come also to it. Now it's just even more expensive," he notes.Updated Date: 04 December 2019, 00:00
