The Unprotected States – Measuring Public Support for Tobacco Control Policies in States with the Deadliest Smoking Disparities
This report revisits Tobacco Nation to gauge states’ support of these policies. How do individuals on the ground feel about laws to curb tobacco use? The answer, we learned, was somewhat surprising. Despite any reluctance leaders in Tobacco Nation states may feel about enacting sensible tobacco laws, residents of Tobacco Nation states support tobacco control policies at almost exactly the same level as their counterparts in states outside Tobacco Nation. In some cases, their support was higher. Inside or outside of Tobacco Nation, residents recognize that they deserve the same public health protections.
