A newly renovated, 34-story high-rise is opening in Detroit. Washington, D.C., can learn a little something from this new building in the Motor City.

Specifically, the building, called Broderick Tower, is opening with a strong smokefree policy.

No. 22 of the rules states: Smoking, of any kind, including medically prescribed marijuana, is not permitted at any time in the building, including entrances, driveways, all grounds, and including the premises.

Hallelujah.

We’re getting more and more inquiries here at Smokefree DC from people desperate because they are being made sick in their own apartments or condos by a neighbor who smokes.

Here’s our advice to property management companies and condo boards throughout D.C.: Go smokefree. Now. Don’t wait until there’s a problem.
