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 the
states 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.
