From controversial posters in Japan to e-cigarette bans, smoking is in the news.
Anti-smoking battles are already heating up this year:
First, as reported on the Huffington Post last week, Manhattan's anti smoking posters created by the Department of Health have been banned by the federal government. Also, strict anti-smoking laws went into effect in Spain yesterday. The Sydney Morning Herald reports that now the country with formerly one of the laxest anti-smoking laws in Europe will have become one of the strictest, along with that of Ireland.
