Interactive State Health Policy Map

Thank you for visiting the TCN State Health Policy Map! For directions on how to use the map, please see the user guide or the quick reference below.

Select any number of tobacco control policies listed in the toolbar to the left of the map, and states and territories that have all selected policies implemented will turn from teal to dark blue. You can also mouse over each state and territory to see where they stand with regards to each of the 11 policies listed in the left toolbar.

For every policy category except local preemption, “Yes” indicates that the state or territory has a policy in place in alignment with tobacco control best practices. A “Yes” for local preemption means that local municipalities are restricted in some manner by state law in their ability to pass evidence-based tobacco control policies.

Feel free to get in touch with us at tcn@astho.org with any state policy updates, questions, or recommendations.
