Youth Prevention

Despite the fact that you must be 18 years of age to purchase or possess tobacco products, more than 80% of current adults who smoke started as teens. The coalition works with local school districts and youth-serving organizations on youth prevention strategies. The coalition also conducts tobacco retailer compliance checks, monitors the marketing practices of the tobacco industry, and supports efforts to increase the price of tobacco products.
