    Today Ceará (CE) became the latest Brazilian state (after São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro) to severely restrict smoking in public areas.  The governor signed a law that prohibits smoking any product, whether derived from tobacco or not, in “collective enclosures” except in segregated areas that have a physical barrier separating them from nonsmokers with technical solutions that exhaust the smoke-filled air directly to the outdoors.

    The CE law (much like Rio’s) specifically defines “collective enclosures” to include workplaces, culture environments, religious environments, sporting environments, entertainment environments, common areas in condominiums, nightclubs, theaters, cinemas, bars, luncheonettes, boats, restaurants, food courts, hotels, inns, shopping centers, banks, supermarkets, butcher shops, bakeries, pharmacies, government offices, health institutions, schools, museums, libraries, exhibition spaces, public transport, and taxis.

    1. Jeremy Says:

      These public smoking bans are becoming absurd. Smokers need to speak up before tobacco products are made completely illegal.
