The new rule went into effect Monday after it was first announced almost two years ago by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The nationwide ban on smoking in public housing was implemented almost two years after the rule was passed by the Obama administration in 2016. The statement added, "hookah involves combustion and hookah smoke exposes users to numerous same toxicants found in cigarette smoke".
