(As in the case with other legal provisions, smoking-related norms have been only laxly enforced or not enforced at all in Armenia. The latest rigor reflects the attitude of Yerevan’s new administration formed after Karen Karapetyan was elected mayor last December).
The 2004 legislation on the sale, consumption and use of tobacco suggests that facilities like restaurants, cafes, cafeterias, and others designate some of their premises for smoking customers, while the rest should remain smoke-free.
I can honestly say I have never read an article quite like this before.
I do think this is pretty much all many smokers in The U.K.,USA and many other countries are asking for.Not to be thrown out entirely into the cold.
(Yes I know the news isn't entirely good because once you give them an inch they take a mile,but this wasn't the worst anti-smoking piece I have ever read.)
