The anti-tobacco law… advantages and disadvantages | Romania

The program Probleme la Zi is broadcast on RRA every day between 1:20 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.

President Klaus Iohannis today signed into law the law banning smoking in enclosed public spaces. The bill was adopted in December by the Chamber of Deputies, as the decision-making body, and will enter into force 45 days after its publication in the Official Gazette.

From then on, smoking will be banned in all public spaces, with the exception of prisons and airports, where designated smoking areas will be set up.

The normative act had been challenged in the Constitutional Court, but the judges established two days ago that it complies with the Basic Law.

Today at the RRA, the program PROBLEM LA ZI is devoted to this subject: The anti-tobacco law, opinion for and against.
