Tomorrow is National “Kick Butts Day,” a day of activism to call attention to the hazards of tobacco use. In mid-Michigan, the managers of a local apartment complex are marking the day by celebrating their recent status as a smoke-free property.  Current State talks with Ingham county health officer Dr. Renee Canady about current available smoke-free housing, what's being done to ensure these properties are available, and whether it makes economic sense.
