Who's at greatest risk for tobacco-related death and disease?

State of Tobacco Control

The 16th 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 findings serve as a blueprint for what state and federal leaders must do to eliminate the death and disease caused by tobacco use.
