Momentum to raise the tobacco sales age from 18 to 21 has been growing in cities and counties throughout Minnesota. Whether you’ve heard a lot or a little about the policy, you probably have some questions. You might be wondering: Has this policy shown reductions in youth tobacco use? Is it worth working on a local policy or waiting for a state law to pass? How do I respond to my community’s questions about this topic?
This webinar shares the rationale behind local Tobacco 21 policies and the positive impact they have had on reducing youth smoking rates. It also answers your questions about building community support on this topic and how to work with your local decision makers who might not be convinced of the benefits.
