New study shows smoking does not stay in smoking-allowed hotel rooms

Posted on

A new study to be published in The Tobacco Control Journal finds smoke residue on surfaces and in the air of both smoking and non-smoking rooms in 30 California hotels where smoking is allowed. Levels were highest in the smoking rooms, but levels in non-smoking rooms were much higher than those found at 10 smoke-free hotels. Read a March 13, 2013 USA Today news article about the study.
