In Wales, a smoking ban in public places

It's scheduled to take hold the day after April Fool's Day, April 2.

The health minister says violators will be shot on sight -- just kiddin. Here's what he really said:
“Long term exposure to second-hand smoke can cause lung cancer, heart disease and ban respiratory illness among non-smokers.

“The most compelling reason for introducing the as soon as possible is that experts estimate at least 400 non-smokers die each year in Wales as a result of exposure to second-hand smoke.

“We know that many smokers want to quit but find it extremely difficult. There has never been a better time to give up for good when the ban comes into force in April."
