Secondhand Smoke
Public Places 1

Dining and Public Places
The Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act prohibits smoking in restaurants, bars, billiard and pool halls, bowling alleys, grocery stores, elevators, restrooms, theaters, museums, libraries, school and retirement facilities and nearly all workplaces. However, 40% of non-smokers in the state still report having to put up with secondhand smoke, and 62% of Coloradans feel outdoor areas of restaurant and bar establishments should be smoke-free.

Providing smoke-free food establishments is an asset to a business. Some Colorado businesses claim a 10% increase in business as a result of smoke-free policies. Smoke-free policies make good health, legal and economic sense.
