In the American Lung Association's "State of Tobacco Control" report, all 50 states and the District of Columbia are graded A to F in five separate categories. The color-coded maps on the pages below show how each state compares to others across the U.S. in each grading category.
Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Funding
The Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Funding grade tells you if your state is providing enough money to programs that prevent and reduce tobacco use.
Smokefree Air Laws
The Smokefree Air Laws grade tells you how well your state protects you from toxic secondhand smoke in public places and workplaces.
Access to Cessation Services
The Access to Cessation Services grade tells you how well your state is doing in providing tobacco users access to proven treatments to help them quit.
State Tobacco Taxes
The Tobacco Taxes grade tells you whether your state's tobacco taxes are high enough to prevent and reduce tobacco use.
Tobacco 21 Laws
The Tobacco 21 Laws grade tells you whether your state has increased the age that tobacco products can be sold to people to age 21, which will help prevent youth tobacco use.
