Honduras Ban Takes Aim at Home Smokers
Posted: February 24, 2011
The new smoking ban that took effect Monday in Honduras not only prohibits smoking in most public places, but also allows individuals to report smokers who light up inside homes to police.
According to an Associated Press report, a clause included in the smoking ban states that "families or individuals may complain to law enforcement authorities when smokers expose them to secondhand smoke in private places and family homes."
The story says first-time offenders are to receive a verbal warning while repeat violators of the ban will be arrested. If arrested, repeat offenders will be forced to pay a $311 fine, an amount equal to a one month salary based on Honduras' minimum wage.
In addition, the ban makes it illegal to smoke in restaurants, bars, nightclubs and stadiums, and also calls for tobacco companies to add a photo warning label to cigarette packs.
