Florida Smoking Laws

Like most US states, Florida has recently increased efforts to ban or limit smoking in public places, beginning with 1985′s Florida Clean Indoor Air Act. In 2002, 71 percent of Florida citizens voted for a constitutional amendment to prohibit smoking in most indoor workplaces. This smoke-free law became effective in 2003. As a result, it is now illegal to smoke indoors in nearly all workplace areas and spaces open to the public in Florida.
