Enter into force on Saturday (19), in Manaus, the new Anti-Smoking Law (Law 1.364/2009 Municpal), which prohibits the consumption of tobacco and tobacco products indoors for collective use, whether public or private. The new law ends the known smokehouses and releases the smoke in the streets, inside the house and in places of worship where smoking is part of the rite. The goal is to prevent contamination of greenhouses.

The director of the Municipal Department of Health Surveillance (DVIS) Varcily Barroso explained that now the list of sites banned smoking has been expanded, diversified and includes bars, nightclubs, taxis and public transportation vehicles, workplaces, culture, recreation, common areas of condominiums, food courts and hotels.

The existing law passed since 1995 in expanding this year, stating the prohibition of smoking in indoor public places entirely. In Manaus, people who show interest in quitting smoking can contact one of four clinics for Tobacco Control in the city.

In the coming days, DVIS launch an educational campaign for educating the public about the Anti-Smoking Law, which provides health infraction and fined up to $ 50,000. By law, offenders are considered both the smoker and the owner of the establishment.
