Sub-national Laws

Are sub-national jurisdictions permitted to have smoke-free laws?


If yes, are they allowed to be more stringent than national law?


If yes, do one or more sub-national jurisdictions have smoke-free laws more stringent than national law?


A brief comment on the extent of sub-national legislation:

Under the law, competent authorities at various levels of government may add places to the list of places required to be smoke free. At least one city council has exercised this authority by designating certain bus stops and sidewalks as 100% smoke free.
