What is "Smoke-Free in the G?"

Smoke-Free in the G is a broad coalition of organizations spearheading the effort to protect our community from the dangers of secondhand smoke.  We are your friends and neighbors and are committed to the health and safety of our community.

"The ill effects of second hand smoke are well-documented. Other states across the country have banned or restricted smoking in bars, restaurants and other entertainment venues without documented harm to businesses. It is time for Indiana to do the same to better protect the health of its citizens."

--Raymond Grady
