Tobacco Use

TobaccoUseRestrictions on tobacco advertising, tax increases, tobacco-free policies, education and cessation support have helped lower smoking rates in the U.S.  However, tobacco use is still a major public health concern. It continues to be the leading cause of preventable disease and death. 

Tobacco 21 (T-21)

Research shows that almost all people who smoke start before the age of 21. Young people often go from experimentation to addiction between the ages of 18 and 21, when they reach the legal age to purchase their own tobacco products.

Tobacco 21 (T-21) is an effort to raise the minimum legal age of sale for tobacco products from 18 to 21. This step will reduce the number of young people who start using tobacco, lower the number of people with tobacco related illness, and improve the overall health of North Country communities. 

More than 200 counties, cities, and towns in 14 states in the nation have passed local T-21 laws. Visit www.healthyadk.org to learn more or to find the T-21 Petition and Statement of Support.
