KnowSmoke Tobacco Reduction Coalition

If You Really KnowSmoke, Then You Won’t Smoke.

KnowSmoke was created to reduce the use of tobacco in Muskegon County and ultimately create a healthier place for all. As a community coalition, this group of dedicated individuals works to achieve four main goals:

  1. Educate the public on the dangers of smoking.
  2. Help people understand the benefits of quitting.
  3. Advocate for policies to create a healthier community and smoke-free environments in Muskegon County.
  4. Promote a smoke-free generation for youth.

Smoking harms more than just the person holding the cigarette. We work with businesses, public officials, and the general public to create healthy, smoke-free public spaces in our community. Quitting tobacco can be incredibly challenging. The KnowSmoke Coalition provides information about treatment and cessation programs and other resources to Muskegon County residents so they can kick the habit for good.
