New smoking laws in Estonia

Beginning June 5, your life will change

Starting June 5th, smoking in entertainment establishments (casinos, restaurants, bars, brothels, etc.) will be legal only if a special smoking room is built.

The Estonian social ministry's health department chief specialist Andrus Lipand said that the experiences of states that have implemented such smoking bans show that less than 10% of institutions build special smoking rooms. Lipand said that two years ago when the issue was raised for public discussion, 70% of the people supported it.
