Montana Tobacco Use Prevention Program

Let’s resolve to keep our air clean in 2023! 

Do your part by observing Montana’s Clean Indoor Air Act, which prohibits the use of all smoking products, including cigarettes, cigars, hookah, pipe tobacco, and marijuana in all workplaces and indoor spaces. Doing so will help all of us stay healthy.  

In Deer Lodge County, our local smoke-free laws also prohibit the use of e-cigarettes or vapes indoors and prohibit smoking within 30 feet of workplaces and indoor spaces.

Montanans voted to approve the Clean Indoor Air Act in 2005. It has helped protect adults and children alike from dangerous exposure to secondhand smoke, which contributes to asthma attacks and poses a risk for cancer, heart, and lung disease.

This vital health protection recognizes that a person’s right to healthy air comes before a person’s right to smoke.

The U.S. Surgeon General states that the only way to protect people from exposure to smoke is to prohibit it entirely from a building. Smoking sections and expensive air filtering devices won’t eliminate the risk.

If you see someone smoking in a workplace or in an enclosed public place, report it at You can use the same link to request free smoke-free signs for your business, workplace, or rental properties.

Anaconda reACT Coalition:


Big Tobacco has targeted teens, attracting them with colorful graphics, age-driven marketing,  pop culture presence, trending pastimes on social media, and the creation of over 15,500 flavors ranging from sweet to minty fresh worldwide. Today, only  7% of teens in Montana vape daily; let’s continue trending down in nicotine use in 2023.

Under the direction of the Montana Tobacco Use Prevention Program, reACT works to address the issue of youth and tobacco addiction. Students from all across Montana are joining reACT. They are taking a stand and speaking out about Tobacco having no place in their lives, and they are dedicating themselves to living a healthier life by remaining free of Tobacco.

ReACT approaches this issue with a three-component strategy to achieve our goal of a tobacco-free generation.
