"In the summer it will be prohibited to smoke outside the public entrances. If anyone smokes outside such as a store, there is a risk that they are no longer allowed to sell tobacco, writes StockholmDirekt."
"– What should you do as well, should I call the police?, says the Ica-merchant Jan Lindberg to Aftonbladet."
"It will be a smoke-free future on the terraces in Sweden. On 1 July this year will enter the new tobacco act in force. Then you are not allowed to smoke on the terraces or outside the ”public entrances”, reports the StockholmDirekt. It means that the person who owns the premises itself shall see to it that it is not smoked in the building."

"Can be banned from selling tobacco."
"For him, the risk is that the store is prohibited to sell tobacco unless the law is complied with. He is highly critical because the ground outside the entrance belongs to the municipality."

"According to the law regarding the smoking ban within ”a few metres” from the entrance. It means that there must be an individual assessment on a case-by-case basis."
"– In a crowded square, there can be many metres. A berth where the wind blows, and the smoke spread quickly, it is fewer, Suzanne Bengtsson at the County administrative board in Stockholm to StockholmDirekt."
