Smoke-free and vape-free housing is where smoking and vaping are not allowed inside, including single-family homes and multi-unit buildings. Those who smoke can live in the building, but the smoking will not be allowed in the building.

Residents of New Mexico:

Smoke-free and vape-free housing allows everyone to breathe cleaner air. Within multi-unit housing, smoke can seep into attached units through cracks, light fixtures, and heating and cooling systems. Smoke-free and vape-free housing eliminates the chance of toxic smoke traveling from one unit to another. Up to 65% of the air in an apartment can come from other units in the building, including common areas. So, living in a smoke-free and vape-free environment is one of the best decisions you can make for yourself and your loved ones.
