Protest against anti-smoking law
How will the law against smoking
������By 2013, cigarettes should disappear from store shelves. The law prohibits the open display of cigarettes, you can choose them according to a separate price list. To buy tobacco products will be possible only in large supermarkets licensed to sell strong alcoholic beverages. The project provides for the labeling of cigarette packs and images depicting the consequences of smoking. It is assumed that such measures will exclude minors from smoking.
The developers of the law consider it necessary to introduce a total ban on smoking in public places and increasing penalties for violating such a ban. It will be possible to smoke only in a few specially designated places and in open territories. It is planned to gradually eliminate smoking in those workplaces that are located on the premises.
The Ministry of Health proposes to establish minimum retail prices for tobacco products, which must be revised upwards each year by the government. According to the developers of the law, this should significantly reduce the demand for cigarettes. Gradually, it is planned to bring the price of tobacco to the average European level.
Sellers will be given the right to request a passport or other identity document from the buyer and containing information about age. This measure will allow to exclude the sale of cigarettes to persons under the age of 18 years.
The new law is likely to become the toughest in the modern history of Russia. That is why the provisions of the bill caused an ambiguous attitude on the part of the departments interested in solving this problem. Before the adoption of the law, he has to go through multiple approvals. The measures proposed by the developers of the law have already met with opposition from major cigarette manufacturers. Adoption of the law, obviously, can be possible no earlier than November 2012.
