A Smoke-free Gémmayze
On Thursday February 19, 2009 many of the pubs and restaurants in Gemmayze will go smoke free. The campaign, organized by the Rotaract Clubs of Beirut and Sahel Metn, is set to allow non-smokers at least one night of partying in a tobacco free environment and more importantly, bring to the attention of those in government the need for strong non-smoking policies. Until policies change, the hope is for “smoke free” nights to be come regular occurrences.
Many cities throughout the world have become completely smoke free over the past few years, with smoking becoming almost taboo. Although a smoke free Beirut is not something that will happen over night, believe it or not, it is a possibility for the future.
