Sheesha May Be Legalized In Pakistan After Years Of Ban, It’s Time For Sheesha Lovers To Rejoice

Sheesha was banned in Pakistan sometime back due to which several small cafe businesses took a major hit. A complete restriction on the sale of tobacco items in cafés and shops were observed. Not only this, but the opening of sheesha bars, cafés and separate areas in the hotels was also banned.

The decision was taken in hopes to promote awareness of the consequences of sheesha consumption among the youth and encourage them to practice mindfulness regarding their health. Although it is common knowledge that sheesha is extremely harmful and is worse than cigarettes, not only does it affect the smoker but also poses severe health threats to the passive smoker.
