Europe’s most nicotine addicted citizens will be banned from lighting up indoors as of today, after a law banning smoking in enclosed spaces came into effect.
AP - Greece, which has been praised for its budget cutbacks and austerity program, is going after another vice: smoking. Starting Wednesday, the Socialist government will impose a tough smoking ban that outlaws lighting up in enclosed public areas and prohibits tobacco advertising. Offenders will be fined up to ¤10,000 ($12,750) and face swift prosecution.
