We don't support shisha businesses in Newham for a number of health related reasons:
Smoking shisha for an hour is the same as smoking 100 cigarettes.
- There is also a risk to smokers from shared mouthpieces.
Find out more about the health risks from smoking shisha.
We also get complaints, from members of the public, of anti-social behaviour at shisha lounges, including noise and other disturbances; gang-related crime; theft; and the sale of tobacco to underage customers.
