Smoking ban in all public housing takes effect nationwide

posted by Dennis Elliott - 

Smoking is no longer allowed inside public housing nationwide starting today.

The ban from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) department was announced back in November 2016 but gave Public Housing Agencies until July 31, 2018 to comply.

HUD explained that the smoke-free rule will reduce damage and maintenance costs tied to smoking, cutback on secondhand smoke and lower the risk of accidental fires.
