As the summer heats up in Tallahassee, Florida, apartment searching is in full swing for incoming freshmen at the three universities in town: Tallahassee Community College, Florida State University, and Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. Many concerned parents who are helping their children find the right apartment most likely wish for their students to live in not only a safe environment, but one that is also free of tobacco.
The danger of living in an apartment that allows smoking indoors is not only imminent for the person who uses tobacco, it is also hazardous to live in an adjacent apartment to the smoker. Secondhand smoke exposure can cause a wide variety of illnesses, including bronchitis, chronic cough, COPD, and can also worsen breathing illnesses such as asthma.
