A report from the American Lung Association shows Wisconsin is falling behind in several key areas that are important to reducing tobacco use.
The State of Tobacco Control report looks at several factors – such as funding for tobacco prevention and treatment programs.
Wisconsin received a grade of “F” for its current level of funding for tobacco prevention program, the level of coverage and access to services to help people quit, and for still having a minimum age for selling tobacco products that’s below 21.
The one area where Wisconsin did receive an “A” was on the strength of its smoke free workplace law. The state enacted a smoking ban in 2010.
