Banning smoking in subsidized housing could save half a billion dollars a year

A new study by researchers at the National Centers for Disease Control found that nearly $497 million could be saved every year if smoking were universally banned in subsidized and public housing. The study also found that savings would be the largest in New York, where an annual $125 million could be saved by the adoption of smokefree policies.
