Magnolia State receives smokefree award
Mississippi cities are protecting more residents than ever from exposure to secondhand smoke thanks to the passage of more local smokefree air ordinances than any other state.
The national, non-profit organization Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights recognized Mississippi cities and Mississippi Smokefree Air advocates as the 2010 First Place Winner of the Smokefree Indoor Air Challenge. This award is given to the state whose cities pass the most local smokefree air policies each year and it recognizes the leadership role that local governments play in protecting the public from exposure to secondhand smoke.
