Research shows that one cigarette has up to 70 cancer-causing chemicals in it.

The California Air Resources Board classified secondhand smoke as a "Toxic Air Contaminant" in the same category as asbestos, cyanide and arsenic - all of which can lead to serious illness and death.

[Second hand smoke] can stay in the air long after a cigarette has been put out and can be involuntarily inhaled by nonsmokers.

The US Surgeon General says there is NO safe level of exposure to second-hand smoke.*


I don't think anyone realizes how much second-hand smoke one can inhale in a single day. One afternoon at Disneyland can equate to smoking 1 cigarette yourself just through second-hand smoke. The facts are so clear and available for everyone! Please spread your Yes vote so we can make it known to Tobacco that they are not welcome in our lives.
