In Norway will be prohibited smoke breaks and sale of cigarettes in cartons
From Oslo inform that majority of Norway employers intend to prohibit their staff making smoke breaks during working hours. With employers agrees Norway Minister of Health Anne-Grete Strom-Erichsen. Question about stiffening smoking control in this Scandinavian country was brought up on recent Storting meeting.
Of what measures will be taken concerning smokers, Miss Strom-Erichsen has informed journalists. First of all, most likely, comes the ban of cigarettes sale in cartons of 10 packs. Secondly, to administrative responsibility will be brought those citizens, who smoke on doorstep of buildings with mass people stay. This will also apply for students who go out during breaks between the lessons in order to "breath air" through cigarette filter.
In plans of Norway authorities is full and irreversible release of the country of tobacco and tobacco smoke. It means that will come day when in entire Norway will become impossible to but cigarettes or tobacco for roll-ups but smokers will be treated the same way as drug addicted people are treated now.
