Stricter Macau laws in force

The new tobacco control law includes the extension of non-smoking areas, such as all indoor areas except smoking room at the airport and in casinos, and areas 10 meters within the bus stops and taxi stands. The fine for smoking in prohibited areas is updated from 600 patacas (about 74.8 U.S. dollars) to 1,500 patacas (about 187 dollars).
