Smoke Free Laws & Enforcement

Info About Smoke Free Laws







Currently, State of California tobacco control laws allow local cities or counties to pass ordinances that are stricter that the State's laws.

In addition to the county-unincorporated jurisdiction, Alameda County has fourteen cities, the majority of which have updated their tobacco control policies to provide protection from unwanted exposure to secondhand smoke in outdoor spaces. Several cities also provide protection in multi-unit housing.

The American Lung Association in California Center for Tobacco Policy and Organizing has updated resources to reflect these exciting steps forward. These documents include cities and counties that have passed policies prohibiting smoking in parks, service areas, entryways, public events, and outdoor dining.
