Smoke-free

Share

No one should have to choose between their job and their health.  And the science clearly shows that secondhand smoke causes cancer, even for those who have never smoked a cigarette. 

We are working in local communities across the nation to make restaurants, bars, casinos and all workplaces smoke-free, protecting all workers from the dangers of secondhand smoke.

Nearly 60 percent of people across the country are protected by comprehensive smoke-free laws where they work.
