    2017 State of Tobacco Control Report

    The 15th 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. This includes tobacco prevention and cessation funding, programs and insurance coverage; smokefree workplace laws; increased tobacco taxes; aggressive implementation of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act; and new for our 2017 report: raising the minimum age of sale for tobacco products to 21.
