No smoking, anywhere, anytime. That’s the new rule imposed last week at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, Japan.
One sailor tells Scoop Deck that some khakis will be patrolling around on the edges of hospital property to make sure nobody is sneaking a smoke.
“It’s crap” according to the sailor, who confessed to being among those still puffing away in the shadows.
A spokesman for the hospital says the move wasn’t really a big change. “Tobacco-use on hospital grounds has already been phased out as the designated smoking area was demolished to allow for more patient parking,” spokesman Richard McManus said in an email to Scoop Deck.
Any other smoking crackdowns going on out there? Let us know.
