Effective January 1, 2008, the Smoke-free Illinois Act prohibits smoking in virtually all public
places and workplaces, including offices, theaters, museums, libraries, educational institutions,
schools, commercial establishments, enclosed shopping centers and retail stores, restaurants,
bars, private clubs and gaming facilities.

Illinois joins 22 other states that have taken this important step to protect its residents, workers
and visitors from the harmful and hazardous effects of secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke is
a mixture of the smoke given off by the burning end of tobacco products and the smoke exhaled
from the lungs by smokers that contains a complex mixture of chemicals, many of which are
known to cause cancer.

There is no protection afforded by separating smokers from non-smokers within the same
enclosed environment, and ventilation systems and air cleaners are not effective at eliminat-
ing secondhand smoke. The only effective means of protecting people from secondhand
smoke is to eliminate smoking indoors, which this law does in regards to public places.
