Smoke-free Laws in Half of the States

This last decade has yielded significant progress toward eliminating smoking in the workplace, restaurants, and bars. Each year in the U.S. 46,000 deaths from heart disease occur in non-smokers from second-hand smoke according to CDC researchers. There are still seven states with no smoke-free laws: Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

PositiveTip: Completely banning smoking in all public areas is the only way to fully protect non-smokers. Do your part in this effort by supporting smoke-free laws.
