Spain sees drastic cut in nicotine use

Madrid: The National Committee for the Prevention of Tobacco Addiction has described the Government’s anti-smoking legislation as the ‘the best advance in public health in Spain in the last two decades’.

They say that nicotine levels in the workplace have fallen 83% since the introduction of the legislation on January 1 this year.

There are an estimated half million fewer smokers now than a year ago. 210 million less cigarette packets have been sold this year, compared to last. More.
