"The American Public Health Association "(1) Opposes state and federal laws preempting local governments' ability and authority to enact their own more stringent restrictions on alcohol and tobacco availability; and (2) Supports local governments' home rule to sue their zoning, planning, and other local police powers to control alcohol and tobacco problems, including advertising and access."

American Public Health Association, Resolution 9410, 1994

In November 2006, Arizona voters approved Proposition 201 by 54.2% of the vote to implement a strong smokefree indoor air law, despite more than eight million dollars of tobacco industry money spent in opposition. More than 57% of Arizona voters defeated Proposition 206, a weak counter-initiative sponsored by the tobacco industry.
