Smoking in public places. How to get around the law?
Smoking - this is when developing dependence on nicotine. Someone thus relieves stress or dulls the feeling of hunger, and some even can not cope with the bad habit and stop worsening their health. What does smoking in public places entail and how to circumvent the law?
Ban on addiction
Smoking in public places is not pleasant enough for a large number of people who monitor their health. This is no accident, because a passive smoker gets a huge amount of harmful trace elements, not wanting it. Scientists have shown that a person who breathes tobacco smoke, receives much more harmful substances than the smoker himself.
In the cities of Ukraine and Russia, in the last five years they have been actively fighting for a healthy lifestyle. That is why in Ukraine in 2012, and in Russia in 2013, a law was passed that prohibits smoking in public places.
Pros and cons
The adopted law implies that smoking is allowed either on the territory of private property or in specially designated places.Such an innovation to ban smoking in public places has both positive and negative nuances. Of course, such a law like people who adhere to a healthy lifestyle. They can easily enjoy the fresh air, breathe deeply and not worry about their lungs and health.
But not without negative moments. Law implies fines. In Russia, their amount ranges from 500 to 90 000 rubles. It would seem, nothing supernatural, if not one but! The owner of a public institution where the visitor lit a cigarette is obliged to pay a fine in the amount of 40,000 rubles. There were many cases when a visitor, without permission, smoked a cigarette and the owner of the institution paid for it. Yes, and smokers themselves often do not support the law, because in order to smoke, you will have to find a place where it is allowed.

Statistics of violators

It is no secret that some smokers are minors. Teenagers often smoke in the hallways and believe that this is not prohibited, since it is private property. This opinion is wrong. By law, smoking in the porches of residential buildings is also unacceptable.

Ban on electronic cigarettes
After a three-year war with smokers in the summer of last year, it was proposed to ban electronic cigarettes, but only if their negative impact on the human body is proved. It is even planned to allocate funds for a detailed study of this topic.
