Veteran actor Janno Gibbs received heavy criticisms in the online world after he issued a statement regarding the proposed tax that will be added to cigarettes every year.
KAMI learned that President Rodrigo Duterte deemed it urgent for the Senate to work on the bill that will put higher excise taxes on tobacco products.
The proposal suggests that 45 pesos will be added to every pack of cigarette starting January 1, 2020 and there will be a 5% increase every succeeding year.
Because of this, Janno took to social media his reaction and expressed that he will not stop smoking even though the prices of cigarette will be much higher in the coming years.
He admitted that smoking is already his happiness and he clarified that he gets away from non-smokers whenever he lights up a stick.
“I’m a smoker! Kaligayahan ko na ito. Raising product prices will not make me stop,” he wrote through a Instagram story.
“On smoking ban: I always make it a point to get away from nonsmokers so they are not affected,” he added.
