Smokefree DC is a citizen-based group whose goal is to promote smokefree environments in Washington, DC.

Ever wonder how many in the U.S. are covered by smokefree laws?

Want to know which states have smokefree laws that cover bars and restaurants, in addition to workplaces? How about what percentage of the U.S. population is covered by indoor smokefree air laws?

Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights, which does a terrific job of keeping track of every last smokefree law and proposal throughout the country, has updated its great maps and lists.

You can learn, for instance, that 1,7,57 municipalities restrict smoking in one or more outdoor areas, including enclosed places, and 1,152 municipalities limit smoking in public outdoor places like parks and beaches. ANR also helps groups like Smokefree DC get smokefree air laws passed (their advice and data were hugely helpful to our effort in the District).

 It’s a great organization and a great resources. Check it out!
