Arkansas

Around 27% of Arkansas adults smoke cigarettes. That’s around 7% more than the national average of 20 percent. According to a recent study, less than 3% of smokers who attempted to quit in the past year were successful. Gov. Mike Beebe recognizes the problem and has made secondhand smoke a priority on his political agenda. In 2011, a law was passed prohibiting adults from smoking inside cars with passengers under the age of 14.
