memo in support of smoke-free public housing. The memo intended to encourage local public housing authorities to designate some or all of their units as smoke-free. The HUD memo points to the scientific evidence that secondhand smoke is not just annoying, it's dangerous. The science points to making all public housing smoke-free due to the nature of secondhand smoke. Because of the immense efforts of trying to get a statewide smoke-free law passed SFW has not fully explored the issue of smoke-free housing. We hope to join the states who have already taken the step to protect people from the dangers of secondhand smoke in a a place many people spend nearly 70% of their time.
