Smoking could soon banned lighting on the land of the world, as the new report reveals the terrible cost of habits for taxpayers from Norfolk.
People and communities in the county council of Norfolk are choosing a committee that will next week consider whether to follow the leadership of the NHS in order to stop using their ban on smoking in their areas.
It is a report that will take place before the 19 July committee, and claims that the broader impact of tobacco-related damages costs Norfolk 187.8 million pounds each year.
The report of the Tobacco Tobacco Tobacco Control Action Plan in Norfolk says that there are around 98,000 adult smokers in the district, and about 1.1 million cigarettes are consumed every day.
Members of the committee are now being asked to consider whether all cities in the world should ban smoking in order to reduce the demand for tobacco products.

While the report mentions smoking costs at 187.8 million pounds, dr. Louise Smith, director of public health in the world, says this figure is higher.
She said: "We estimate that smoking in Norfolk has an annual impact of £ 220 million, from death costs to poor employees, loss of business productivity, fire in the house, and garbage collection.
"On the contrary, it is estimated that smokers pay 120 million pounds each year for tobacco products."
