Iceland’s tobacco legislature.

The government of Iceland is conserving a physician sponsored legislative tat provides a new approach to tobacco control.

If this law gets passed then tobacco, cigarettes would be sold only in pharmacies to adults over 20yrs and they would need a permit for it.

Since tobacco/nicotine addiction is best handled by primary prevention once addiction sets in it deserves therapy.

But still does not address answer what happens to secondary smoking or tertiary smoking.

It could also give rise to illegal sales, and the other issues.
