Public housing in states including OH to go smoke

In November of 2016 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the new federal rule and gave public housing authorities 18 months to implement their own plan to put into action as of today.

"In addition to protecting residents and employees from secondhand smoke, smoke-free policies create healthy environments that encourage people who smoke to quit or attempt to reduce smoking", the department continued.

Smoking in federally-subsidized public housing is now prohibited.

Prior to the ban's enactment, roughly 228,000 public housing units were already smoke-free, CBS News reported.

The Housing Authority says since this is an unfunded rule, they don't have the money to set up designated smoke areas, and the best solution for the wide variety of complexes is to rule it out completely.

Blueprints for 3D-printed guns could be available this week
A settlement between the State Department and Defense Distributed is allowing the release of plans for guns online. The activist, Cody Wilson, argued that the ban violated his rights under the USA constitution.


The ban prohibits smoking tobacco products in all indoor common areas, administrative offices, living units and outdoor areas within 25 feet of the buildings.

Smoking is no longer allowed in New York City public housing. Public housing agencies can also choose to ban e-cigarettes.

The Housing and Urban Development website's guide for local housing authorities includes strict procedures.

"I think this will be one of the hardest rules to follow", Perry Rumnit, Jr., a NYCHA resident, says in a promotional video for the policy.

In Fort Worth, the ban will go into effect starting Wednesday, according to Fort Worth Housing Solutions president Mary-Margaret Lemons. Tenants could also face eviction after several smoking violations.
