Yep…non-smokers will be doing a happy dance while smokers are gonna be annoyed as f**k if the Department Of Health in South Africa goes ahead with plans to make changes to the Tobacco Products Control Act..one of which includes not being allowed to smoke within 50 meters from the nearest person on a public beach.
Here’s the section from the government notice on regulations relating to smoking in public places dated 30 March 2012.
Smokers won’t be too stoked with some of those other proposed regulations either.

Are you a smoker? It’s gonna suck sitting so far from everyone on a crowded Camps Bay beach in the middle of summer hey. And by far i mean a completely different beach like Noordhoek.
