Tobacco use will kill 1 billion people this century -- unless we act now. Tobacco companies must be held accountable for their marketing practices and deception. To pass strong tobacco control laws, we need grassroots support -- we can't do this without you!
President Obama: Regulate All Tobacco Products by April 2015
Right now, the FDA regulates cigarettes, smokeless tobacco and roll-your-own tobacco to prevent kids from using them and protect public health. But other products, including e-cigarettes and cigars, are exempt. The FDA must close this gap to stop tobacco companies from targeting our kids with a new generation of unregulated tobacco products.
We need the FDA to protect our kids from ALL tobacco products. You can help by signing our petition to President Obama urging his Administration to issue a final rule to regulate all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and cigars.
