Statewide Smoking Ban in Delaware

November 2002, the little state's big step will give it the nation's toughest ban on indoor smoking, one that would
end smoking in all public areas, including bars, restaurants and casinos. At that stage, other states already have
laws, which ban smoking, including thestates of California, Colorado, Maryland and Utah, but most still allowed
smoking in bars. The bill passed with little to no resistance. The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce took
opposition on it, and the Delaware Restaurant Association dropped its opposition the week before the bill passed.
Delaware health officials say tobacco use is a factor in more than one-third of all cancer cases in the state.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has classified secondhand smoke as a Group A carcinogen, which means
there's sufficient evidence that it causes cancer in humans, according to the American Cancer Society. Each year,
secondhand smoke in the United States is responsible for an estimated 35,000 to 40,000 deaths from heart disease
in people who are not smokers. It's also to blame for about 3,000 lung cancer deaths in nonsmoking adults.

Dr. D. A Waterfield, said that the smoke-free environments will protect the health of all residents in Delaware by
helping youth never to start smoking, encouraging adults to quit smoking, and reducing the exposure for all of us
to the harmful effects of secondhand smoke.
