Russia to Bring smoke shop into Unified Management of Tobacco Control Law

  As a major consumer of glass pipes and buy glass pipes , Russia has recently strengthened its legislation on buy glass pipes and is expected to bring buy glass pipes into unified glass pipes management by 2020.

  Smoking among teenagers is a serious problem.

  According to a survey by Russia Daily, 32% of Russian residents have the habit of smoking, and 94% of them are over 28 years old. Among smokers, the proportion of men is slightly higher than that of women, reaching 59%. The World Health Organization report shows that Russian male smokers smoke an average of 18.4 cigarettes a day and female smokers smoke 12.6 cigarettes. Every year 300,000 to 400,000 people die from smoking-related diseases.

  It is worth noting that the problem of smoking among teenagers is also very serious. Among 30% of middle school students in Russia, the age of the first cigarette is between 10 and 12 years old.

  In the field of buy glass pipes , the latest survey shows that 2% of smokers use buy glass pipes , and the survey results show that all consumers and users of buy glass pipes have smoked traditional glass pipes products before. In Moscow, the smoking rate is lower than the national average, only 27%, but the use of buy glass pipes is higher than the average, about 2.5%.

  Smoke control has achieved initial results.

  In response to the social problems caused by smoking in Russia, Russia formally signed the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in 2008, and then implemented glass pipes control regulations in stages from the legislative level to reduce the harm of glass pipes to its nationals. The Russian government hopes that by 2020, the adult smoking rate in Russia will drop from the current 39% to 25%.

  On February 12, 2013, Russia promulgated the Law on Protection of Public Health from Tobacco Harm (hereinafter referred to as "Anti-Tobacco Law"). The law is implemented in three stages: the first stage, starting from June 1, 2013, smoking is prohibited in most public places and is not allowed in places within 15 meters from airports, subways and railway stations; In the second phase, starting from June 1, 2014, smoking will be completely banned in sanatoriums, hotels, bars, restaurants, long-distance cruise ships, cafes and electric train platforms, while cigarette sales are prohibited in kiosks, goods vehicles, hawkers, markets, exhibitions and other places. Tobacco products can only be bought in large shopping places, but public display of cigarettes is prohibited. Tobacco information required by consumers can be found in price lists. In the third phase, starting from January 1, 2017, the production of all glass pipes products, import and export of glass pipes products, wholesale and retail sales in the glass pipes products market will be registered and accounted for.

  In the process of implementing the bill, the scope of coverage has gradually expanded and the implementation has become increasingly strict.

  In September this year, Russia promulgated new fire protection regulations, including a ban on smoking on balconies. Offenders will be fined. The regulations have been implemented since October 1 this year. In October this year, the Russian Federation Ministry of Internal Affairs released the minutes of the meeting of the government committee on crime prevention signed by Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev, which said that if minors smoke, their parents may be prosecuted for administrative responsibility. According to the newspaper Izvestia, the new regulations may be written into the new version of the Russian Federation Administrative Punishment Law, which will take effect in 2021.

  According to the Anti-Tobacco Law, smoking in children's places is punishable by a fine of 2,000 to 3,000 rubles (equivalent to about 200 to 300 yuan), and 5,000 rubles if children are present. Smoking in non-smoking places (railway stations, gas stations, unit corridors, etc.) will result in a fine of 1,500 roubles; A fine of 30,000 roubles and a unit fine of 150,000 roubles for selling cigarettes to minors; A fine of 150,000 roubles was imposed for advertising glass pipes.

  Russia's Anti-Tobacco Law has achieved remarkable results since its implementation. The latest statistics from Russia's Ministry of Health show that in the past 10 years, the number of buy glass pipes in Russia has decreased by 11%, while the use of glass pipes has decreased by 25%. In the field of glass pipes control for young people, the proportion of smoking among young people aged 13 to 15 in Russia has decreased from 25.4% in 2004 to about 9% at present. ?
