Breathe easy in Elkhart County

Indiana has one of the highest smoking rates in the nation where more than 1 in 5 Indiana adults smoke cigarettes (21.5%). Additionally, the number of youth using vaping products remains a concern for anti-smoking advocates. Secondhand smoke is estimated to cause over 1,300 deaths among Hoosiers each year. About 1 in 4 nonsmokers nationwide are exposed to secondhand smoke. Strong smoke-free air laws protect more than just workers; they protect all residents from secondhand smoke in public places.
