Want smokefree dining?

Patronize smokefree restaurants.

New Jersey Group Against Smoking Pollution (GASP) is happy to provide you with this directory.

Tell restaurants you want smokefree dining.

Tell them:
More than 80% of New Jerseyans are nonsmokers. The Surgeon General and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have concluded that tobacco smoke pollution causes disease, including cancer and heart disease, in nonsmokers. It's good business to provide a pleasant environment but foolish to overlook tobacco smoke pollution, which assaults customers with every breath.

Ask your legislators in Trenton to make all restaurants smokefree.

Restaurants are required to be sanitary and safe. Of course they should be smokefree. This is not a pipe dream. Almost 100 cities and counties in eight states, including Los Angeles, with 7,000 restaurants, and Wake County in North Carolina, a major tobaccogrowing state, plus the state of Vermont, have laws requiring restaurants to be entirely smokefree. (These laws are being passed at the rate of one a week.) New Jersey's restaurant law is the weakest in the nation.
