Anti-smoking group to collect signatures for Navajo Nation ban

A group called Arizonans Concerned About Smoking will collect signatures to put a smoking ban on the Navajo Nation ballot in 2014, KJZZ reports.

The group helped pass the Smoke-Free Arizona Act in 2006. The law doesn't apply in Indian Country so a change in tribal law will be required.

Dr. Leland Fairbanks, the president of the group, said a signature drive will begin in January 2014.
