smoke free MTOctober 1, 2009, marks an important day for tobacco use prevention in Montana. Full implementation of the Montana Clean Indoor Air Act (CIAA) requires all enclosed public places and workplaces, including bars, taverns, and casinos, to be smokefree.  Laws like Montana’s CIAA protect public health and prevent diseases caused by exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke. The significance of this major public health policy extends to future generations who will grow up healthy in a smokefree Montana. We encourage you to learn more about the CIAA by clicking here. The majority of Montanans support the CIAA. This law belongs to Montana’s citizens and we appreciate your continued support. If you observe a violation of the law in any enclosed public place or workplace in Montana, you can report it by completing a violation report form.

All tobacco/smoke-free signs and Quit Line materials are FREE of charge at the MTUPP online store.

 

Healthy Community

 

Some groups of Montanans experience unusually high rates of tobacco use. For these groups, smoking rates have not declined significantly in the past decade as it has for the population of Montana as a whole.  Women, veterans, low socioeconomic status populations, the mentally ill, and racial/ethnic minorities are especially vulnerable to tobacco use.  Through tailored outreach and public awareness we strive to eliminate these disparities.

Healthy Stores

Kids who shop in stores with tobacco marketing, such as gas stations and convenience stores, are 64% more likely to start smoking than their friends who don’t. You may ask, what specifically is going on in those stores to cause this difference in risk?
