Menthol Tobacco: Targeting Youth & Creating Health Inequities
In 2017, Minneapolis and St. Paul showed strong leadership in protecting the health and well-being of its residents by restricting the sale of menthol tobacco to adult-only tobacco and liquor stores. This means that menthol flavored tobacco can't be sold in places like gas stations and convenience stores where children are present, and are restricted to locations like tobacco specialty shops where you must be 18 to enter. Now advocates from communities across the state are working to pass similar policies to restrict menthol tobacco.
We need your support to make these policies a reality. When you sign up for action alerts, the Physician Advocacy Network will keep you updated on opportunities to support menthol regulation in your community. We value whatever support you can provide and leave it up to you how you participate
