From Navajo Nation President Nez:

In case you haven’t heard, the Navajo Nation recently banned all commercial tobacco use, including smoking and vaping, in enclosed and indoor areas on the Navajo Nation, including casinos

Patricia Nez Henderson (our incoming President) was instrumental in passage of this legislation, as were other SRNT members and many members of the Navajo Nation. It is another great example of science, advocacy, and public policy working together to advance public health.

For additional information on the new law, here are a few links:

Congratulations to the Navajo Nation and thank you to all of those who worked for years to make this happen!

Have a Happy & Safe Thanksgiving Everybody!
