Russia finally clamps down on smoking...

We first reported on Russia's changing tobacco laws 
in late Oct '12; now the State Duma, their lower house 
of parliament, almost unanimously passed a progressive 
ban on kiosk cigarette sales, curtailing public smoking 
and related advertising. It marks a noted clamp down 
on tobacco by the world's # 2 consumer of cigarettes. 
It's the end of smoking in Russia as they know it. 
This Reuters article was brought to my attention today 
by #TobaccoFreeKidsCA. Thanks for the heads up...
