Tabaksfabrikant helpt Noorse rokers

Café’s in Oslo krijgen van een tabaksfabrikant terrasverwarming aangeboden zodat de rokers buiten bij lage temperaturen nog enigszins comfortabel hun sigaretje kunnen roken.

En natuurlijk komt er weer kritiek van het anti-front….

Tiedemann’s Tobacco Co is giving the lamps free to Oslo bars and cafes that can’t allow their patrons to smoke inside their establishments any longer. “We saw that smokers were heading outdoors,” Jan Robert Kvam of Tiedemann’s told newspaper Aftenposten Aften. “We wanted to help out.”

Oslo was enjoying warm summer weather when the smoking ban first took effect on June 1, but temperatures have plummeted in the past week. Now, with thermometers hovering around 10C (50F) in the evening, smokers shiver while puffing outside.


While Kvam doesn’t see any problem with accommodating smokers outside cafes and bars, it remains to be seen whether neighbors and non-smokers agree. Some local residents are growing irritated that smokers are spilling out onto local sidewalks, leaving the air fresher inside the bars than it is outside.

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
