Author: Andy Marso

Intro:

Representatives from the American Cancer Society and American Heart Association harshly criticized two tobacco-related bills passed by a House committee Tuesday.

Kevin Walker, of the heart association, said one bill would gut the state smoking ban by allowing businesses to establish smoking sections in which all patrons and workers would have to be 21 or older. He said the other bill is a House resolution that would ask the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to explore whether smokeless tobacco products are less harmful than cigarettes.

"Taken together, these would set us back 10 years, at least," Walker said.

Province introduces legislation to ban sale of tobacco in pharmacies 

Jump to full article: Canadian Television (CTV) (ca), 2012-05-01

Intro:

The provincial government announced legislation Tuesday aimed at restricting the sale of tobacco in certain locations.

The proposed legislation would ban tobacco sales in pharmacies and health-care facilities and would prohibit the sale of tobacco products in vending machines.

"Research has shown that making it harder to buy tobacco products helps reduce the number of smokers and helps prevent youth from taking up smoking in the first place," said Jim Rondeau, the province's minister of healthy living.

Brothers Pharmacy says they had already decided to stop selling tobacco.

LETTER: Campaign against smoking 

Jump to full article: Arab News (sa), 2012-05-02
Author: KHIDR, BY E-MAIL

Intro:

there is still no ban on smoking in public spaces and no corresponding fine and enforcement system in place. Everywhere I go with my family, there are people smoking within malls, restaurants, coffee shops and all sorts of enclosed spaces while me, my wife and little kids suffocate and choke on our food trying to gasp for some oxygen.

LETTER: Outdoor smoking affects other people 

Jump to full article: Victoria (BC) Times Colonist (ca), 2012-05-02
Author: Iris Gray Esquimalt

Intro:

The editorial on smoking says nonsmokers should learn to relax and stop telling other people what to do with their health. What the editorial fails to take into account is the effect of cigarette smoke on my health as a non-smoker.

I have severe asthma, and cigarette smoke is one of my triggers. Last summer, I attempted to go to a few events in public parks.
