Ban on hookah tobacco planned

08 Nov 2009. A parliamentary majority wants to ban hookah smoking, according to free daily newspaper 24timer.

Young people in Denmark smoke hookah more than young people anywhere else in Europe. "If I was to be optimistic, I would say that we will have a ban before the arrival of spring. In any circumstance, one will be in place before the end of the parliamentary year in the beginning of June," says head of the parliamentary health committee, Preben Rudiengaard (Venstre) to the free daily. Rudiengaard has support from a parliamentary majority. Both Dansk Folkeparti, Socialdemokratiet, SF, and Enhedslisten support a ban, according to telephone inquiries. (pi)
