Montana and Wyoming Laws on Smoking

The Montana Clean Indoor Air Ac, enacted in 2005 and implemented fully in October 2009,
allows hotels to offer 35% of their rooms as smoking rooms, and the rest have to be smoke-free.

protection against exposure to secondhand smoke in public places.

Smoking control in Midwestern US and at San Francisco



モンタナ州では全客室の35%の範囲で喫煙客室を認めているが、国立公園内のホテルでは100%スモ−クフリーと
設定されており、レストラン、バーを含め室内では一切喫煙できない。喫煙規制の州法のないワイオミング州に
あるグランドティトン国立公園、イエローストーン国立公園内でもホテル内での喫煙行為を一切許していない。
レストラン、バーも禁煙である。「室内は禁煙である」との市民意識は定着しており、シアトル市内でも、
サンフランシスコ市内でも、全くの違和感なく、観光客を含め、屋内全面禁煙設定を当然のこととして受け入れている。

屋外での規制は緩いが、中国人観光客は所定の喫煙場所以外でも公然とタバコを吸っていた。中には人前でつばを
吐く者もおり、平然としている。日本人団体観光客のなかには携帯灰皿を持ちながら国立公園内の遊歩道で
喫煙しているものがいた。携帯用の灰皿さえ持っていればどこでも吸えるとの感覚が抜けきらないのであろう、
米国でも目立つ存在となっている。喫煙規制の面では、日本はすべての点で諸外国から大きく乖離しており、
首相、厚生労働大臣を含む政府関係者、自治体の長の意識の低さには、ただ、無力感を味わうしかない。
