ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico is being recognized for its efforts in preventing cancer.

A progress report from the American Cancer Society is applauding New Mexico for its choice to include e-cigarettes in the Indoor Air Act. The report rates each state in eight areas of public policy that can help fight cancer, including smoke-free laws.

It also shows New Mexico has taken steps to address half of those policies already. ACS says it’s hopeful other states will follow New Mexico’s lead.
