In 2006, Colorado’s Clean Indoor Air Act went into effect, eliminating smoking in work and public places including restaurants and bars.

As a result, Colorado has seen important changes. Millions of Coloradans are now protected from the dangers of tobacco smoke at work and more than 100,000 fewer people smoke than before the law went into effect.

Thanks to the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act, the majority of Coloradans can breathe safer, smoke-free air.

However, too many Coloradans are still being exposed to tobacco smoke. That’s why some Colorado communities are working to strengthen the law and to ensure all Coloradans are protected – where we live, learn, work and play.
