Everyone deserves fresh, clean air
Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. Secondhand smoke causes cancer, heart disease, strokes, asthma and other diseases. There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. Tobacco-free policies:
- Protect everyone from the harm of secondhand smoke.
- Reduce costs for healthcare, employers and building maintenance.
- Reduce smoking initiation among young adults.
- Reduce waste.
- Create a cleaner environment.
