Why have Smoke-free Multi-Unit Housing?

 

 

Tobacco and marijuana smoke, nicotine, and cannabis vapes all emit toxic fumes that damage our lungs and immune system, create fire hazards endangering the health and safety of those living in our homes as well as our neighbors, especially those who share our walls and patio air space.

 

The tobacco, vaping, and cannabis industries want you to believe that these products are safe, smell great, make us more trendy and cool, and are good for our health.  Is this marketing actually true, though? Check out these websites to learn more about what these industries don't want you to know!
