Public Smoking Ban

Law will ban smoking

A law banning smoking in public areas in Abu Dhabi will come into force soon, said a senior official. “The law is considered by the Executive Council and will be enacted soon,” said Juma Al Junaibi, General Manager of the Abu Dhabi Municipality.

He was speaking to the media after announcing the strategic plan of the municipality yesterday.

Meanwhile Abu Dhabi Municipality has launched a Smoking Prevention and Regulation initiative in line with the Strategic Plan and Priorities and in a bid to elevate awareness of public health issues, said a statement issued by the municipality.

The purpose of this initiative is to ensure that the health of non-smokers is not compromised by secondary smoking in public areas.

The plan will designate special spaces in public areas for smokers which will be separate from non-smoking areas. It will be implemented as a collaborative effort between Abu Dhabi Municipality and areas deemed public.

Permits for smoking areas in these spaces will be issued once plans of the areas are submitted to the municipality.

Wow! Kumusta naman ang health bisyo ko tsk. Minsan na akong nangarap na sana mabawasan na ng husto ito o di kaya in the future itigil ko na ito pagnasapiling na ako ng aking partner in life (asus!). Pero sa nabasa kong ito, sinabi ko na naman na ang bait talaga ni Lord. God is always making a way! Sana maging successful ako sa aking magandang hangarin sa aking sarili para naman maging pretty ako always. Hmm 7 yosi a day a couple of months ago down to 4 yosi a day since beginning of June. Not bad eh?! 😆

    maganda yang goal mo. pwede naman talagang itigil yang yosi.😀

    dito sa Pinas sinusulong naman yung Graphic Health Warning bill, para yung mga pakete ng yosi instead na text warning, gagawing picture-based yung nakalagay. para kita agad kung ano ang pwedeng maging effect ng yosi sa helath.

    Hehehe wow very honest naman sana magtagumpay yang pagtigil mo sa paninigarilyo.

    About dun sa news…

    Naku parang hocus pokus lang yang ban na yan… kung talagang gusto ng ban ang i-ban ay ang paggawa ng sigarilyo kc naman talagang nakakamatay yan… But cguro laging pera ang dahilan kung bakit ang industriyang ito ay di pa rin natitigil kahit kabi-kabila na ang scientific studies na nakakamatay talaga ang paninigarilyo.
