Tough new smoking laws soon?

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Yes, totally coincidentally he gave up smoking last September. Anyway - the pregnant women thing is ridiculous, pretty much zero women smoke here anyway.

I agree completely. Luckily it probably won't be enforced, but seriously what a condescending aspect to the bill.

The part about banning sales to children is a long time coming though.

How will they enforce this?

From yesterday all cigarette packets are legally required to display graphic health warnings of rotting lungs and suffocating babies...

The warnings – displaying grisly charcoal-coloured lungs and an infant with severe breathing problems – will be required on cigarette packets from Saturday, but packs not sporting the images will continue to be seen on the shelves as vendors exhaust their old stock.
