Et Tu, Turkey?

First it was Bulgaria, now even the Turks are banning public smoking.

No word yet, on how the new law will impact huka bars or the Turkish economy (yes, the economy). But Ankara isn’t taking any chances that the public will disregard the new law. The Turkish government has created a 4,500 man force to hunt down the Jedi smokers and destroy them, or at least issue a fine.

That's a pretty light punishment, considering that Prime Minister Erdoğan has equated smoking with terrorism.
