A history of smoking in Norway, from the law changes that banned smoking in public areas to the rise of snus.
Like many other countries around the world, Norway has changed its smoking laws in recent times. These changes have affected smokers and non-smokers alike.
Those that don’t smoke can sit in smoke free places, such as pubs, restaurants and other public areas some of which are even located outdoors. The changes have pushed smokers in different directions in order to get their nicotine or tobacco fix.
