People mistakenly assume Hookah smoking is safer and less addictive than cigarettes. Read or listen to a 101.5 radio interview with our Executive Director, Karen Blumenfeld, which discusses the worrisome trend of youth hookah smoking in our nation.

New Jersey limited hookah establishments with the 2006 Smoke Free Air Act. In November 2011, the NJ Department of Health (NJ DOH) Office of Local Public Health issued an Administrative Advisory on the operation of public places that permit hookah smoking.
