NYCHA Moves Ahead With Federal Ban on Smoking in Public Housing

December 2, 201620 min
The federal government has enacted a ban on smoking in all public housing. Cindy Rodriguez, WNYC reporter, reports on the ramifications for residents who live in NYCHA housing — which is the largest public housing agency in the country — and how the ban will be implemented. @BrianLehrer The problem with the smoking ban is enforcement. Other drugs are illegal already, but that doesn't mean they are not there. — Jason Ocaña (@brocana91) December 2, 2016 .@BrianLehrer I see "no smokers" in apartment ads all the time. People who don't smoke shouldn't have to breathe in other people's smoke. — Persa Verance (@PurlMaster55) December 2, 2016
