Prohibiting minors from possessing tobacco: Comparisons of strategies from eight municipalities with policy recommendations

The Foundation's Substance Abuse Policy Research Program was designed to provide support for investigators to conduct policy research on a variety of projects directed at helping the country reduce the harm caused by substance abuse. The purpose of this project is to: (1) identify and assess policies that can reduce the harm caused by substance abuse; (2) analyze their feasibility, effectiveness, and likely consequences; and (3) help ensure that the understanding gained through these analyses will be used by decision makers in the public and private sectors. The results of this study will aid policy makers and scholars alike by providing a detailed picture of how policy initiatives are implemented, and by carefully examining how acts of implementation lead to specific consequences in particular communities. The research reports produced by this study will enable policy professionals and tobacco control advocates to fashion programs best suited to their particular policy goals in ways that are consistent with the values of the communities within which they operate.
