Nat’l smoking ban pirmado na ni Du30
PINIRMAHAN na ni Pangulong Duterte ang Executive Order number 26 o ang national smoking ban.
Kinumpirma ni Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella ang paglagda ni Duterte sa EO 26.
"In order to minimize access, particularly to minors, to tobacco products and in order ot provide a more supportive environment for those who are attempting to quit tobacco use, there is a need to strengthen existing measures on access restriction, including the regulation of sales, distribution and availability, and the measures prescribed under the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC)," sabi ni Duterte.
Ipinag-uutos din ng EO 26 ang pagtatayo ng "Designated Smoking Area" (DSA). — Bella Cariaso
