Smoking Bans More and more households in the United States are banning smoking. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 75% of households now forbid smoking at any time or place in the home. Smoking bans have spread across the country. At least 35 states have passed some type of law banning smoking in almost all public places and workplaces, including restaurants and bars.
