Abstract: During the past years behavioral intervention and movements have made considerable impact on tobacco use, especially in the areas of prevention and cessation procedures. Although great strides have been made a need still exist for the continued experimentation of both prevention and cessation technologies. Some areas of concern include the threat of secondhand smoke in open air places and in homes as a result of clean air bills and the harmful effects of thirdhand smoking. It is important that behavioral analyst focus on these issues. Although strides are being made in efforts to prevent the harmful effects of smoking, approximately only half of the states passed clean indoor bills. The proposed panel will discuss and share strategies on how we can assist in making the United States a totally clean-air country.
