How does your state compare?
The 20th annual American Lung Association "State of Tobacco Control" report evaluates states and the federal government on the proven-effective tobacco control laws and policies necessary to save lives. The report serves as a blueprint for what state and federal leaders need to do to eliminate the death and disease caused by tobacco use. This year's report recognizes the progress that has been made toward reducing tobacco use over the past 20 years and how youth vaping and flavored tobacco products threaten that progress. The report also outlines the federal, state and local policy actions that are necessary to put the country on a path to end tobacco use and eliminate health inequities made worse by tobacco use over the next 20 years.
