The prevention movement has been the key agent involved in smoking control policies. This study describes the context and the process in which Law 28/2005 was passed in Spain with a synthesis of its substance. It provides the background of the events leading up to Spain's current smoking control law in addition to an analysis of the role played by the different social actors in the process and the arguments and strategies employed in opposition by the tobacco industry. A review is also provided of the political agents, highlighting that decentralized countries have further problems in enforcing regulations. This case offers lessons for the future.
