SmokeLess States Program - Implementation

The Foundation's SmokeLess States: National Tobacco Policy Initiative is a program that supports development and implementation of comprehensive statewide strategies to reduce tobacco use through education, treatment, and policy initiatives.The purpose of this project is for Florida's Tobacco-Free coalition project headed by the American Cancer Society to: (1) reduce the number of children and youth who start using tobacco; (2) develop and implement a tobacco prevention and control media campaign designed to increase public knowledge of the consequences associated with tobacco use and to change attitudes about cigarette smoking; and (3) reduce smoking among Florida youth by developing or expanding five innovative prevention activities. The project will complement a Florida tobacco coalition effort to increase the state excise tax and secure long-range funding for a comprehensive tobacco prevention and control plan.
