Plan to Expand Hookah Ban

Plan to Expand Hookah Ban

The Health Ministry has plans to ban hookah use in traditional restaurants and rest houses along roads across the country, said deputy minister Ali Akbar Sayyari. “Tobacco consumption is a leading cause of various types of cancer in Iran, and reducing its consumption needs promoting a culture of abstinence,” he said, ISNA reported. Previously the ministry had banned hookahs in open-air gardens in cooperation with the judiciary and municipalities. Sayyari said Iranians spend around 100,000 billion rials ($3 billion) on tobacco products every year.
