State No Smoking Bans

The majority of U.S. states have some sort of "No Smoking" bans on smoking in all enclosed public places, including all bars and restaurants: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin.

In North Dakota for example, on November 6, 2012 in a landslide decision (66% - 33%), voters chose to put a stronger smoke-free state law in place. Voters from each of North Dakota's 53 counties and all legislative districts voiced support for making North Dakota the 24th state, along with the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, to require all non-hospitality workplaces, restaurants, and bars to be 100% smoke-free. In addition, North Dakota's smoke-free law adds provisions to require all gaming/gambling facilities to be 100% smoke-free.

Who has the most stringent laws? Seems that a San Rafael, California ordinance prohibits smoking in residences with shared walls. Although this doesn’t affect businesses, it may be the strictest anti-smoking law in the United States, city officials say.

The ban, passed by the city of San Rafael, applies to both owners and renters, and it covers any multi-family residence with three or more units, including condominiums, co-ops and apartments. "I'm not aware of any ordinance that's stronger," said Rebecca Woodbury, an analyst in the San Rafael's city manager's office who helped write the ordinance. She cited studies that found secondhand smoke seeps through walls, ventilation ducts and even cracks as justification for the ordinance.
