Protect yourself and others against indoor secondhand marijuana smoke!
If passed, Assembly Bill (AB 374), would allow marijuana retailers to sell food, non-alcoholic beverages, and tickets to concerts and other events, forcing workers to inhale the toxic chemicals that are emitted by the secondhand smoke. This would roll back certain protections and safety guidelines concerning secondhand smoke in the workplace. As of today (9/25/23), the bill is headed to Governor Newsom for his signature.

Welcome to Smoke-Free San Diego
Smoke-Free San Diego is a project of the Tobacco-Free Coalition of San Diego County, a group of local agencies and community members who fight for smoke-free air and mobilize communities to bring out policy change.
Over the past 20 years much progress has been made to protect San Diego residents and our region’s environment from the dangers associated with secondhand smoke, tobacco litter, and illegal tobacco sales.
