December 30, 2007
As of January the first, smokers will be facing a far tougher regime in Europe ... every EU country has to have a smoking ban in place. It's up to each country to decide how liberal or draconian its measures can be. Here in Germany, each of the 16 federal states has enacted its own anti-smoking law. The new regulations mean Germany is going to be far more pleasant for non-smokers. Many bar owners though are worried they´re going to lose business.
