Status: Baseline only
Eliminate policies in states, territories, and the District of Columbia that preempt local tobacco control policies
Baseline: 32 states preempted local tobacco control laws in 2018
Target: 0 States
The most effective tobacco control policies often start at the local level, and local policies can help change national attitudes around smoking. Preemptive state policies are a major barrier to local tobacco control policies, including smoke-free policies and age limits on tobacco sales.
