Expanded Clean Indoor Air Act effective December 8, 2005

On December 8, 2005  voter-approved initiative​ 901 which requires all publicly accessed activities to prohibit smoking within any closed area of their facility, and requires smokers to stand no closer than 25 feet to an open door, window, or air in-take supplying air to the interior of the building.

Washington became the 5th state to implement a comprehensive statewide law prohibiting smoking in all indoor public places including restaurants, bars, taverns, bowling alleys, skating rinks, and non-tribal casinos. All Washington residents have the right to breathe clean air. The comprehensive smoking law protects families, children, workers, and the elderly from secondhand smoke.

Electronic cigarettes are battery operated devices designed to deliver nicotine and other chemicals to users in vapor instead of smoke.

Some say that e-cigarettes are a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes, the US Public Health Service, which serves as the authority on smoking cessation, does not yet include e-cigarettes as a treatment for tobacco dependence in its clinical practice guidelines.

Some research notes that e-cigarettes are an entree to other, more harmful substances.

​The use of e-cigarettes among youth are on the rise.
