Prop 99 and Tobacco Policy

About the Program

The goal of the Prop 99 Tobacco Program is to protect people from secondhand smoke in public settings - such as parks, recreation areas, work sites, schools, multi-unit housing, etc.

Smoking prevalence differs by socioeconomic status. Individuals with lower incomes, less education, and those who receive public insurance are more likely to be smokers.

According to the World Health Organization, half of the people who smoke today will eventually succumb to some kind of tobacco- related illness.
