Mayor Bloomberg Triumphs On Decade Anniversary of 2003 Smoke Free Air Act
 
This week marked the 10th anniversary of the Smoke Free Act
enacted to protect the health of all New Yorkers. A main consequence
of the ban on smoking inside bars and restaurants is that there are 
emature deaths from diseases related to tobacco, as well as
disease symptoms aggravated by second hand smoke. Mayor 
Bloomberg believethat 10,000 lives were saved due to the ban.
 
The ban made all establishments and businesses with employees
smoke-free including:
 
• All office buildings, factories, and warehouses.
• All private offices and previously designated “smoking lounges.”
• All food service establishments, restaurants, and catering halls.
• All bars, including bars in restaurants.
• Membership associations.
• All areas of theatres.
• Banks, educational and health care facilities, and child day care centers. 
• Shopping malls and retail stores (where goods are sold or rented to the public).
• Sports arenas, roller and ice skating rinks, billiard parlors, bingo halls and similar places. 
• Public transportation facilities, reception areas, platforms and waiting rooms.
 
There are a whole plethora of disease conditions aggravated by
second hand smoke. These diseases include asthma, iritis,
deviated septum, bronchitis, thalassemia vera and many others.
 
Tha ban essentially made smoking socially unacceptable.
Initially store owners believed that the smoke ban would hurt
business. Quite the contrary turned out to be the case.
Finally, a person could walk into a restaurant and see the
other end; whereby, previously you could hardly see more
than a few feet ahead of you.
 
Currently, Mayor Bloomberg is seeking to create a minimuim price
for cigarettes and prohibiting groceries from openly displaying cigarettes
on shelves highly visible to the general public. Currently, the price
of a pack of cigarettes in NYC is approaching $13.00 a pack. 
 
Over time, the smoking ban should help to reduce the cost of
progrqams like Medicaid since fewer hospitalizations for lung-related 
diseases are expected.Mayor Bloomberg Triumphs On Decade Anniversary of 2003 Smoke Free Air Act
