In 2006, Colorado’s Clean Indoor Air Act went into effect, limiting smoking in many work and public places – including restaurants and bars. Since then, we’ve come a long way in protecting the health of people statewide. Millions of Coloradans are now free from the dangers of tobacco smoke at work. And today over 100,000 fewer people smoke cigarettes.
Unfortunately, there’s still more to do. Too many Coloradans are still exposed to the dangers of tobacco smoke where they live, learn, work and play. And the fact is that the U.S. Surgeon General says there is NO safe level of exposure to tobacco smoke. Period.
