Putin signs law to curb smoking, tobacco sales in Russia | Reuters.

Tobacco control is accelerating around the world as governments everywhere realise the huge costs to their societies from smoking.  Russia is the latest state to bring in much tougher laws to restrict smoking.  This is the second largest tobacco market in the world.  The good times are coming to an end for the international tobacco companies.  At what point will local authority pension funds realise that divestment soon is a sound policy as the markets for this deadly product become ever tighter?
