Who We Are Mission: Reduce exposure to secondhand smoke through the promotion of strong voluntary policies that lead to reduced tobacco use and increased tobacco-free living throughout Maine. Vision: A state where all can live free from involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke. How: Providing technical assistance, resources and initiatives to promote policy and environmental change.

Why Promote Comprehensive Tobacco-Free Initiatives  Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death.  There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke – even brief exposure causes damage that can lead to series disease and death.  Creating tobacco-free areas changes the social norm around tobacco use and promotes tobacco-free living.  Nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke increase their risk of developing heart disease by 25- 30% and for developing lung cancer by 20-30%US Surgeon General Reports 2010, 2012
