China announced a ban on Smoking in public places
China is breaking up with addictions. The authorities announced a ban on Smoking in public places. While these rules work only in the capital but from 2017 spread all over the country.

5 million smokers in Beijing have been kicked out of restaurants, cafes, airports and stations to the street in the summer of 2015. In March next year to part with the habit have and Shanghai. 20 more Chinese cities ready for such a step. It seems to prohibit to smoke in public places may soon across China. Such radical measures in Smoking China is not yet known. The net area is expected to be all restaurants, offices, airports, railway stations, metro. You cannot smoke in schools, hospitals and stadiums. In Beijing, where the ban is in effect for more than a year, fined and smokers and restaurant owners, if they had somebody lit a cigarette. A penalty of nearly $ 1,500. This year you can't smoke in trains-bullets.

The penalty to 30 thousand yuan and 300 thousand rubles. For the second attempt, the offender will only have to fly or walk. In high speed train it will no longer be allowed. And that's something. After all, the anti-tobacco Convention the who China signed 10 years ago, but only now raised the tax. And cigarettes went up. However, no scary pictures. Smokers as in 2010 same - 316 million 700 million do not smoke but breathe the smoke. And a powerful lobby - more than a third of cigarettes in the world "made in China". In the budget tobacco Corporation brings in $ 150 billion and takes a million lives a year. Through the Smoking ban took many countries. But cigarette in China is not just a habit. It is a sign of status. You are what you smoke - so they say. Buy from your packs when meeting politely. And to refuse - moveton. Fines scare business, but to change behavioral codes difficult. For the year cigarette sales fell 3%. But massively quit the Chinese have not yet started.
