Good News.

Good news, the illegal sale of tobacco products to minors is down across the state! This will hopefully decrease youth consumption rates and the reduce the number of youth becoming lifetime smokers.

Today's Indy Star is reporting that the statewide smoke free air bill is not dead and will be considered in conference committee. We will be watching this one for sure to see if it becomes a reality. Even with this possibility we should not give up on making Indy smoke free, every year for the last few years there has been a bill introduced to go smoke free, none of them have passed. So until this is a reality we should continue to push to make Indy a completely smoke free city.
