How does your state compare?
The 22nd 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. In the report, the Lung Association assigns letter grades, A through F, to the state and federal policies best proven to prevent and reduce tobacco use.
This year's report highlights the failure of the Biden administration to finalize rules to end the sale of menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars. The Lung Association is extremely disappointed with the delay in enacting these life-saving rules. The report also shows states’ progress as well as stagnation on implementing policies to reduce tobacco use and help people end their addiction to tobacco.
