More and more cities in Mississippi vote to go smoke-free every year, recognizing the value it brings to residents and visitors. We're proud that Mississippi was a national leader in new smoke-free communities in 2015 and 2016.
As of January 2018, there are 143 100% smoke-free communities and 3 smoke-free counties in Mississippi.
Why go smoke-free? Secondhand smoke, indoors and outdoors, presents a clear hazard to non-smokers, especially children. Find out more about secondhand smoke risks »
