Smokefree Environments

All Americans deserve to live, work, study and play in smokefree environments. By implementing laws and policies to make our communities smokefree, we can:

  • Protect all workers and patrons from the dangers of secondhand smoke
  • Reduce death and diseases associated with secondhand smoke
  • Motivate smokers to quit
  • Reduce the number of people who start smoking

See how we are taking steps to make sure everyone in all 50 states can enjoy clean, smokefree air.
