Residents of Multi-Unit Housing Complexes
If the complex that you live in doesn’t have a smoke-free policy, you may be inhaling another person’s secondhand smoke!
There are many benefits that come with a smoke-free policy:
Those who are non-smokers are not involuntarily exposed to the dangers of secondhand smoke.
Children and their developing lungs are no longer exposed.
Lowering the amount of secondhand smoke a person is exposed to, lowers the chance of acquiring respiratory problems or chronic illness associated with secondhand smoke in the future.
