Spain Puts Its Butts Out
New Year’s Day saw one of Europe’s strictest anti-smoking measures take effect in Spain. The new law will create a haven for non-smokers as tobacco use has been prohibited in bars, restaurants and most public spaces. –JCL
A tough anti-smoking law has taken effect in Spain.
The ban — one of the strictest in Europe — outlaws smoking in all bars and restaurants. Smokers will also be prohibited on television broadcasts, near hospitals or in school playgrounds.
The law tightens anti-smoking restrictions introduced in 2006.
