Smoking will be allowed only in the garden.
”Six ministries were working on drafting this law, “ said Seranic.

He also emphasized that a new law prohibits the sale of tobacco and tobacco products in all educational, health and sports facilities.

”There have been written warnings on cigarette boxes so far, and now there will also be pictorial warnings, which is the practice in the European Union countries, “ said Seranic.

He also added that the violation of the new legal provisions will be punished for both legal and natural persons, but did not specify what kind of punishment will be used and in which amount.
