Chain smokers only have a little time left to enjoy smoking in the streets after President Rodrigo Duterte confirmed the implementation of the nationwide ‘No Smoking Law’ this April.
The President, said he is serious in implementing the smoking ban due to its negative effects in one’s health.
Pres. Duterte threw a joke that someone could only smoke in the middle of the sea and five km from seashore.
Pres. Duterte has implemented the said ban in Davao City, where smoking is strictly prohibited in public places in the city.
Prior to this, the President has postponed the signing of the executive order on smoking ban, because according to him he needs to thoroughly review the draft of said order.
