Panama Desde los años 70´s en Panamá está prohibido fumar en establecimientos de salud y educación, centros religiosos, cines, teatros y terminales de transporte, transporte colectivo, entre otros. La Ley 13 de 2008 amplia estas prohibiciones a restaurantes, bares, casinos, hoteles, similares y cualquier otro ambiente de trabajo cerrado. Lo que hoy día permite indicar que contamos con la prohibición para AMBIENTES CERRADOS 100% LIBRES DE HUMO DE TABACO, que tal como se establece en el artículo 8 del CMCT, esto nos permite proteger efectivamente la salud de no fumadores, disminuir el consumo y la exposición de los fumadores, desocializar la práctica de fumar y hacer menos atractivo el consumo de productos de tabaco para los jóvenes. La disposición cuenta con una amplia aceptación de la población nacional, aunque algunos extranjeros residentes en Panamá en los últimos años la encuentran exagerada, pero busca ayuda para dejar de fumar. Algunos hoteles, tienen como política la aplicación de una tasa sancionatoria para los huéspedes que fumen en las habitaciones que alcanza los B/. 100.00. Desde el 2009 se trata de avanzar en la aprobación de una Ley que prohíbe fumar en todos los lugares donde haya concurrencia de personas sean abiertos o cerrados, entre los que se incluyen las terrazas y similares, playas y otros. Esta disposición fue incluida en el Proyecto de Ley 136, que fue aprobado en tercer debate pero su contenido no cumplía con las disposiciones del CMCT por lo que a solicitud del Ministerio de Salud fue vetada por la Presidencia de la República en junio de 2019.
