Welcome to Global Advisors on Smokefree Policy (New Jersey GASP)

GASP is a non-profit organization with a mission of promoting smokefree air and tobacco-free lives. In 2009, we updated our GASP acronym to Global Advisors on Smokefree Policy to better reflect our mission and those we help.

For 37 years, GASP continues to positively impact millions of lives, and serve as an integral resource to our public health partners, the business community and the public-at-large. Our Policy and Legal Resource Center's global reach extends from New Jersey, to other states and countries working on tobacco-free initiatives.

GASP has developed a wealth of expertise and resource materials on this subject. We provided technical assistance for the passage of the 2006 New Jersey Smoke-free Air Act and many other tobacco control laws including the New Jersey 100% Smokefree Residential College Housing Law (the first state to enact such a law).

The New Jersey Smoke-Free Air Act exempts casino gaming floors, so we continue to educate on the need for 100% smokefree gaming floors to protect casino workers and patrons in Atlantic City and elsewhere. Other major projects include protecting adults, children and pets from the harmful effects of secondhand and thirdhand smoke in homes and vehicles, implementing tobacco-free college campus policies, educating on the dangers of hookah and electronic cigarette use, supporting outdoor smokefree policies.
