Making sales more difficult

| November 2, 2017

Turkey is preparing a bill that will extend restrictions on the sale of tobacco products, according to a Trend News Agency (Azerbaijan) story citing Turkish media reports.

The country’s Deputy Prime Minister Recep Akdag was quoted as saying that the new law would ‘prohibit the sale of tobacco products at the cash desks of stores’.

Anti-tobacco bans and restrictions were stepped up in Turkey from January 2015.

Currently, the Trend story reported, all tobacco products were sold in black packs to make them less attractive.

Turkey imposed in 2008 a ban on smoking tobacco in public places.
