Calls to Action

Help Stop Suffolk County from Increasing the Legal Age to 25

The Suffolk County Legislature is considering a Local Law to increase the legal age of purchase for tobacco products from 21 to 25 years old.   

Raising the legal age to 25 years old would create inconsistencies with how the state and federal government define adulthood for most every purpose, such as purchasing alcohol.  

The legal age is already 21 years old and this law would have many unintended consequences. Tell your Legislators you oppose this Local Law and any other attempts to unfairly target adult tobacco consumers.

CITY OF LA: STOP A BAN ON FLAVORED TRADITIONAL TOBACCO PRODUCTS & MENTHOL CIGARETTES

The Los Angeles City Council is STILL considering a ban on menthol cigarettes and a flavor ban on other products like smokeless tobacco and cigars – despite Governor Newsom’s call for the state legislature to address the issue of youth vaping.

This broad ban would threaten local businesses across the city. We need to speak up again and tell the City Council to not overextend a flavor ban when addressing the problem.
