Even though it's illegal to sell tobacco products to anyone under 21, Alabama has limited capacity to enforce the law. In fact, 75% of kids who try to buy cigarettes and other tobacco products are not refused sale despite being under the legal sales age.
Alabama needs a comprehensive strong tobacco retail licensure program as a central way to effectively enforce tobacco laws and prevent youth access to harmful tobacco products. This would enable communities to track and set limits on where tobacco products are sold and ensure retailers are following tobacco laws. Join us October 11th at 11 a.m. CT for a webinar to learn more!
Guest speakers include:
- Dr. Mark Wilson, Health Officer, Jefferson County Health Department
- Ashley Lyerly, Senior Director of Advocacy, American Lung Association
Together, we can speak up to protect Alabama's youth from a lifetime of tobacco and nicotine addiction.
