Regulating Smoking at Home

Last week, Boston Globe Magazine took on the issue of regulating smoking in multi-unit housing in Snuffing Out Puffing Neighbors. The article explores the move toward restricting smoking further in Massachusetts, and suggests that landlords already have options. “Many landlords are under the impression that it is illegal to ban smoking in apartments. Not so, says Eileen Sullivan, director of policy and planning for the state's Tobacco Control Program: ’We see it as similar to the issue of whether to allow pets.’” More on all aspects of smoking regulation is available at Mass. Law About Smoking.
