There are exciting things take placing in Los Angeles County, and I would especially like to give KUDOS to Temple City for passing a Comprehensive, Smoke-Free policy, a Tobacco Retail Licensing (TRL) policy and a Multi-Unit Housing policy all on December 4th, 2012! Creating policies that will eliminate the risk to secondhand smoke exposure will translate into reducing the prevalence of cardiovascular disease and stroke constituents of Los Angeles. I encourage all cities across the County to revisit their tobacco control policies, in order to identify if enough work is being done to help visitors and residents.
Until next time,
Jackie, Greater Los Angeles Government Relations Director
