  • If you live in public housing you must now smoke at least 25 feet away from properties

Starting Tuesday, July 31, smoking will be prohibited in public housing across Tennessee and the U.S. "All housing units will be smoke-free".

The policy prohibits tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars or pipes - in all living units, indoor common areas, administrative offices and all outdoor areas within 25 feet of housing and administrative office buildings, according to a release from HUD.

The ban also means a healthier working environment for the people who work in public housing complexes. "They have more things to fix than telling somebody they can't smoke", Robinson said.
