Mexico: Public buildings go tobacco-free
Although city buildings in Mexico City have been smoke-free for several years, a new law now prohibits all forms of tobacco in public buildings. The new law bans smoking as well as chewing tobacco from any building, enclosed facility, property, vehicle, and equipment owned or leased by the city. "As city employees working with the public, the fact that we are not smoking (or chewing tobacco) in front of them, and that we're providing a smoke-free environment, shows a more professional image," said Assistant City Manager/Administrative Services Director Roger Haynes. City parks, lakes, and sports fields are excluded from the new law. Mexico Ledger.
