Navajo Nation’s Smoke-Free Legislation


In a historic win, the Tribal Council of the Navajo Nation approved legislation that prohibits the non-ceremonial use of tobacco products in all areas of the reservation except personal residential property. This INCLUDES casinos!!

What a giant leap forward for the smoke-free movement. The Navajo Nation is the first among all the Indian tribes to go smoke-free. So many more people will be breathing cleaner air due to this legislation.

I might suggest an update to this post to reflect the fact that the President of the Navajo Nation vetoes this legislation.
