Your right to breathe smoke-free air could be at risk.

Did you know that smoking used to be allowed in restaurants and bars, grocery and retail stores, college classrooms, and movie theaters? 

For more than 40 years, the Colorado Group to Alleviate Smoking Pollution (GASP) has successfully worked to protect the public from secondhand smoke.  GASP knows what it takes to stand up to Big Tobacco — we’ve fought the tobacco industry and won.

Now the people of Colorado are faced with new threats that could jeopardize our smoke-free public places and workplaces.

GASP’s work matters more than ever

For decades, we have understood the serious health risks posed by secondhand tobacco smoke. With GASP’s support, Colorado has enacted laws that prohibit indoor smoking. Today, research is showing that marijuana smoke and aerosols from electronic smoking devices contain many of the same cancer-causing chemicals as tobacco smoke.

GASP is a 501(c)(3) statewide nonprofit that through education and policy change works to save lives by eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke at work, in public places, and in multiunit housing.  No one should be forced to breathe secondhand smoke, whether it is from tobacco or marijuana smoking or the aerosols emitted by electronic smoking devices.
