Smoking banned in all public housing

- To enforce a new U.S. Housing and Urban Development rule that bans smoking in public housing, the New York City Housing Authority announced its comprehensive smoke-free policy.

The policy means residents are prohibited from smoking cigarettes, cigars and pipes in all units, indoor common areas, administrative offices and outdoor areas within 25 feet of housing and administrative buildings.

When the first state to enact a statewide smoking ban took place in California in1995, many states followed suit, however, there were no policies put in place for federal public housing units. They say the rule will protect close to 2 million Americans across the country from being exposed to secondhand smoke in their homes, including more than 18,000 in Wisconsin. The ban does not apply to e-cigarettes, snuff and chewing tobacco, although there may be restrictions on those in some areas.

Starting Tuesday, smoking is no longer allowed inside public housing nationwide.

However, Greensboro's Housing Authority implemented its policy in May 2018, and the rules are stricter than the national policy - and residents and their visitors cannot smoke anywhere on the property.

So far, HUD said about 600 of its public housing agencies have already implemented smoke-free policies.
