Show Me Smoke Free

We are working towards smoke-free indoor air in all workplaces.

Good for Health

Exposure to secondhand smoke increases the risk of heart disease and lung cancer. Right now, we don’t have a strong, countywide smoke-free law. We all deserve the right to breathe smoke-free air, no matter where we work. Making all workplaces smoke-free can improve public health for everyone who lives, works and plays here.

Good for Business

A smoke-free ordinance does not harm a local economy. A CDC study of smoke-free laws in 11 Missouri communities found that 8 of the 11 cities had increased sales for eating and drinking establishments post-ordinance. The remaining three experienced no change.

Good for Our Region

Most of the United States is protected under smoke-free policies. Cities like Chicago and New Orleans have already gone smoke-free. Without a countywide smoke-free law, we’re missing out on tourism and conventions that would bring business to our community.

Show Me Smoke Free Coalition

Voters in St. Louis County have the opportunity to make all workplaces smoke-free by voting YES on smoke-free this November.
