Despite Big Tobacco, winning smoke-free restaurants
In 2007, Maryland PIRG Foundation and Maryland PIRG Citizen Lobby helped lead the campaign to make all Baltimore workplaces, including restaurants and bars, smoke-free. Passage of this legislation at the city level proved to be the tipping point for state-wide public health legislation that is estimated to save the lives of 1,000 Marylanders each year and cut health care costs by $600 million.
