Can you still get cigarettes at vending machines at the station or was that stopped a couple of years ago?
At least the ones I see in Vaud are only in bars and they need a little token (called jéton) that you have to get from the bartender after convincing him you're old enough.

Hurrah for direct democracy for health care! *

* But don't worry as they voted instead to allow funding of homeopathic treatment on basic health care so your compulsory insurance pays for sugar pills.

Hurrah again!
Say what? Placebos are covered?

Homeopathic treatment is covered.

But nothing surprises me here. (The article linked to in this thread about Appenzell Inner Rhoden kids smoking also stated that in that Canton, women didn't get the vote until 1991!)

I think it still varies by canton, but most 'public' ones, if they still exist, now require a Swiss id (driving licence counts) to be swiped first, as proof of age.

Legend has it that in the vote as to whether women could have the vote, in which the women were allowed to vote, the women voted against having the vote, but despite the cantonal vote on the vote voting against the vote, the federal voting vote which had voted that all cantons must give women the vote, the women who voted against the vote were outvoted and were give the vote anyway.

When I was younger it was acceptable to smoke with kids in the car. I remember my Grandad would barely crack the window and we would be chocked from the smoke whilst sitting in the back seat . . . . However, he was usually bringing us to get ice-creams so... we were okay with it


Wonder how long itll be till they are completely banned from cars. I recall reading somewhere that they can be as distracting as phones (I don’t think they are that distracting)


(Maybe something was mentioned in the video but I am unable to watch it)

Good idea to ban children from cars; they are distracting

Certainly more distracting than phones.
