A tobacco-themed museum in Shanghai is being censured for tempting kids to light up by ignoring the smoking health risks. City authorities are now re-examining a recent resolution to award the China Tobacco Museum the title of “Patriotic Education Base” and earlier award of “Science Education Base” and “Model Unit for Shanghai Juveniles’ Moral Education,” yesterday’s Legal Evening News reported. The titles sparked discussions among most participants at a conference held in Beijing on Tuesday. Many smoking-control experts declared that their research showed the museum was leading young people to have a positive view of smoking habit.
