ABSTRACT
The article informs that Japan Tobacco has launched mobile trailers called "Smocars" for smokers to smoke in even when it is not allowed in public places. Based on the classic Airstream holiday caravan from the USA, "Smocars" have been spotted at locations throughout Japan over the past year. Meanwhile, something similar has appeared in India. Godfrey Phillips, Indian subsidiary of Philip Morris, launched a similar mobile smoking lounge in Mumbai, which was parked at various landmark sites for a few days each, followed by appearances in Ahmedabad, Delhi, and Baroda. The vehicles display statutory health warnings and smokers are allowed to use them for 15- 20 minutes. Entry is free and people using them can smoke their own cigarettes or buy them inside the van, along with soft drinks.
