Mississippi is one of only two states nationwide without any restrictions on smoking at child-care facilities. The state has banned smoking in government buildings and on college campuses, but proposals for a broader ruling haven't been met with much approval.

Supporters were looking to ban smoking in restaurants and nongovernment buildings, but the proposal fell apart in March of 2011.
