Isabel Diaz Ayuso has been able to explain the relationship between the proposal to prohibit smoking on terraces launched by the Minister of Health, Mónica García, and fentanyl addiction. It was Ayuso herself who, through a message on her X (Twitter) account, linked both concepts, with images of fentanyl addicts accompanied by the message: “But smoking tobacco on the terraces was prohibited.”
This Wednesday, when asked by laSexta about this message, she was unable to detail what relationship the two concepts have. “
Man, said directly like that… Obviously there is no“, It has been recognized.
Experts in the field disassociate any type of relationship between both concepts, remembering that it is “practically impossible” to obtain fentanyl without a medical prescription, as explained by Manuel Herrero, from the Spanish Society of Anesthesiology.
Ayuso also questions whether there is scientific evidence of the harm of smoking on terraces, something that specialized associations also debunk. “It is beyond any doubt that the carcinogenic levels to which a person is exposed are unacceptable,” says Ubaldo Cuadrado, vice president of Nofumadores.
Previously, the regional president has asked “

“What I ask above all is consistency, because I see many governments and health authorities that all the efforts they put in place against smoking, which does not seem bad to me as long as it is not liberticidal, such as smoking in your own vehicle, are not However, they are so hardworking to eradicate the use and consumption of many substances, of all drugs and especially cannabis, that as is being seen in so much data, reports, studies, consumption among minors and of all ages continues to grow. , as well as the trafficking of these drugs,” Ayuso defended.
