The bill also creates national programs to prevent the sale and use of laughing gas for children.
GERB MP Kostadin Angelov explained that the problem has been solved in many European countries.
“Ireland has criminalized the sale of Laugh Gas. The Danish government enacted a package of measures to restrict sales in 2020 following a series of worrying incidents laughing gas to minors. From June 2021 the sale of laughing gas to minors in France is prohibited in all shops, public places and on the Internet, depending on the packaging. And the credit for this draft law, I must say, goes to the Ombudsman of the Republic of Bulgaria, Mrs. Diana Kovacheva“.
