Bhutan bans smoking in public

December 17th, 2004 | by Andrew Ó Baoill |

And people thought the Irish ban was comprehensive:

Bhutan has become the first country in the world to ban smoking in public
as well as the sale of tobacco. Smoking in the Himalayan kingdom will now
only be legal in private homes. The government says it has introduced the
ban for the well-being of its people. But observers predict tobacco will
still be available on the black market.
