ban on tobacco advertising
The European Union welcomed yesterday a continent-wide ban on tobacco advertising that will come into effect this week.
The move will prohibit tobacco advertising in the print media, on radio and over the Internet from July 31. It also bans the sponsorship of cross-border cultural and sporting events by tobacco companies.
Tobacco advertising on television has been banned in the EU for more than a decade. “Banning tobacco advertising is one of the most effective ways of reducing smoking,” said health and consumer protection commissioner Markos Kyprianou.
Well Guess what Mr Kyprianou. I am proud to advertise and will continue to smoke the following brands.
