Exhale: Smoke-free Air in Mississippi

It started in Metcalfe and has made its way to New Houlka with 172 additional Mississippi communities and seven counties in between.

Since Mississippi does not have a state-wide comprehensive lasw to prohibit smoking inside all public places, it has become incumbent upon local entities to ensure that their citizens are protected from secondhand smoke.
