The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) said that it has launched the third phase of its year-long anti-smoking campaign, which will target schools and governmental organizations. The authority will conduct

lectures in schools and inform students about the dangers of smoking. They will also distribute warning pictures depicting the health hazards of smoking.

“We are trying to reach out to all sections of the society from school children to women so that we can target various groups and inform them of the ill effects of smoking,” said Ahmed Kalban, CEO of primary health sector at the DHA.

    Once they get schools and government buildings, next will be privately owned businnesses, then your own home. Once these fanatics get started, there,s no stopping them.

    This is great stuff what Dubai is doing. Hopefully, smoking will be completely banned in Dubai and this ban will spread all over the UAE.
    I was disgusted to find smokers in the Abu Dhabi mall yesterday at the food court with kids inhaling the second-hand death. And they have ash-trays in the elevators in the buildings for cryin’ out loud.

    SMOKERS: Don’t be hatin’. I wanna see your kind wiped out (see you quit that is).
