Brazil mulls cig, alcohol ad ban

Published on .

The Brazilian Senate's Commission of Constitution & Justice approved a bill banning all advertising and sponsorship for tobacco and alcohol, including beer. The bill will next be considered by other congressional bodies. Brazilian marketers spend up to $500 million a year on tobacco and alcohol marketing, and currently operate under a self-regulation system. David Hanger, International Advertising Association world president, said the move, if successful, "may bring similar efforts to introduce censorship in other Latin American countries.''
