We know May is a busy month, filled with graduation ceremonies, end of the school year activities, and the start of summer! As such, we will not host our You're the Cure Advocacy Chat this month and will pick up again in June. We invite you to join us on June 24th!
Alabama E-Cigarettes Bill Heads to Governor's Desk
We do everything we can to protect our loved ones, especially children, from the harms of tobacco and nicotine. But unfortunately, with many adolescents falsely believe that new tobacco products, such as e-cigarettes, are safe, we know many kids face real pressure to pick up this deadly habit. That's why throughout Alabama's legislative session, the American Heart Association has been asking legislators to support House Bill 41 aimed to help reduce kids' access to e-cigarettes and protect them from a lifelong addiction to tobacco and nicotine.
We're excited that on May 15th the Senate voted in favor of HB41 - sending the bill to the governor's desk! Please join us in thanking your senator for their vote
