Europe Catches Up With U.S. on Tobacco Advertising Limitations

Forbes.com: EU Vote Brings Tobacco Advertising Ban Closer

A crackdown on tobacco advertising in the European Union came a step closer on Wednesday when Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) backed a ban on cigarette promotion in a wide range of media.

And from David Byrne, European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Affairs:


"What we are looking at today is, probably, the legislation which bans advertising of tobacco in newspapers, magazines, periodicals, on the radio and Internet. I am very, very pleased about this.This will help reduce tobacco consumption by removing the image that tobacco is 'cool'. I predict that this legislation will be in final form by next summer."
