Anniston Goes Smoke-Free!

by Julie H. on Friday, May 10, 2013

Secondhand smoke kills, but the good news is we know that comprehensive smokefree laws can help reduce heart attack rates in a given community almost immediately after they go into effect. In the absence of action by the Alabama Legislature to pass a strong statewide smokefree law, we’re taking our fight city by city until they step up. The most recent Alabama community to join the chorus of smokefree cities is Anniston, Alabama!

On April 23, the Anniston City Council passed an ordinance that covers all workplaces, including restaurants and bars. We couldn’t be more pleased that local leaders stepped up to the plate to promote a healthy and vibrant Anniston.

Email this success to state lawmakers in the Anniston area today and let them know their community is now smokefree!
