Monk busted in Bhutan for smuggling tobacco 

A Buddhist monk could face five years in prison after becoming the first casualty of a stringent new anti-smoking law in the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan.

The unidentified monk was charged with smuggling contraband tobacco from nearby India after being caught with 72 packets of chewing tobacco.

Bhutan vows to become the first smoke-free nation because tobacco use is considered bad for one’s karma.
