There is scientific evidence that exposure to tobacco smoke in outdoor locations may be just as harmful as being exposed indoors. According to the July 2011 Project Action Tobacco-Free Coalition Community Survey, most adult area residents are in favor of tobaccofree outdoor areas and 86 percent of Fulton County residents and 79 percent of Montgomery County residents are in favor of tobacco-free playgrounds. This is due in part to the growing awareness of the environmental impact of tobacco litter, dangers of secondhand smoke and influence on children when tobacco use is not restricted.
