Dirty Ashtray Infograph

The results of the Dirty Ashtray Award have been released…and the ACT has scored a C grade, for their efforts in leadership in protecting the community from exposure to second-hand smoke. While the ACT Government is praised on strong restrictions on tobacco sales and marketing, and positive licencing schemes and bans, more work needs to be done to ensure consistent funding for strong public education programs, and supporting quitting groups in disadvantaged communities in the ACT.
