Belmont shows the way!

The leadership shown by the Belmont, CA City Council is to be commended as we now see that Afghanistan is following its lead to stamp out smoking!

"Afghanistan may be the world's largest producer of heroin, but the government has taken the first step towards to a ban on smoking in public places.

Local media said on Tuesday that the council of ministers had ordered a campaign through the media and mosques to inform the public that smoking in educational institutions, hospitals and government offices has been outlawed.

The ban will be widened later to cover hotels and restaurants."
