Kansas workplaces and public places are 100% smokefree!

On July 1, 2010, all of Kansas' enclosed workplaces and public places, including restaurants and bars, went 100% smokefree. Governor Parkinson signed this significant bill into law on March 12, 2010. Read Kansas' smokefree law.

Kansas's statewide law was built upon the many communities that have been actively working on smokefree air efforts for many years. Thirty cities have already brought smokefree air to town, including Overland Park, Olathe, Lawrence, Topeka, Newton and Fairway.


Kansas law does not preempt the passage of local smokefree laws. Read more about current tobacco-related legislation in Kansas.

Current tobacco-related statistics are available from the Centers for Disease Control's Tobacco Control State Highlights, 2010.
