“Tobacco product” means any product entirely or partly made from the leaf of the tobacco as raw material which is manufactured to be used for smoking, sucking, chewing or snuffing.
The law’s definition of “tobacco product” aligns with the definition of “tobacco product” provided in FCTC Art. 1(f).

Outside Packaging and Labeling
“Package” means any covering, wrapper, container, carton or other enclosure that contains a tobacco product including labels and other written or graphic information on or in it.
The law’s definition of “package” aligns with the definition of “outside packaging and labeling” provided in FCTC Art. 11(4).
Any packaging and labeling used in the retail sale of the product. (FCTC Art. 11(4))
“Message” means a warning or other information about the health effects of tobacco use or exposure to tobacco smoke.
The definition of “message” contained in the law is significant because the law requires all tobacco product packaging to contain “messages.”
