Colorado smoker rates down

Colorado has managed to drop the percentage of adult smokers from 22.3% in 2001 to 17.9%. This ranks Colorado as the ninth lowest state in the US in terms of percentage of smokers. You can see these figures and numbers all the way back to 1990 from Governor Ritter's report. Want to see more on the national numbers? Check out the full report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
