There’s no smoking in restaurants, in bars or even in public parks. That’s all the result of the mayor’s aggressive anti-tobacco health policies over the past decade.

Spending one hour smoking flavoured tobacco through a shisha pipe can be the same as inhaling the smoke of 100 cigarettes, a charity has warned. British Heart Foundation (BHF) Scotland issued the warning about the exotic water pipes as thousands of Scots are expected to stub out their cigarettes on No Smoking Day. It said a survey revealed that 84% of respondents in Scotland believed a shisha was the equivalent to smoking 10 cigarettes or fewer while “almost everyone” polled was unaware the amount of smoke inhaled in a typical one-hour session could equal that of 100. The survey also showed that 9% of Scots use the pipes, which are also known as hookahs. A freedom of information request submitted by BHF to Glasgow City Council showed that there has been an increase in shisha bars trading in Scotland’s largest city in the past five years.
