The Vermont General Assembly could soon take action on bill S.24
In January of this year, the American Lung Association rated the U.S. state of Vermont received an overall failing grade for its tobacco control efforts.
“In Vermont, our high school tobacco use rate remains 28.2%,” said Alex Crimmin, the American Lung Association’s specialist for health promotions in Vermont, in a statement.
“The surge in youth vaping combined with the fact that smoking increases the chance of severe COVID-19 symptoms, make it more important than ever for Vermont to implement the proven measures outlined in ‘State of Tobacco Control’ to prevent and reduce tobacco use,” Crimmin added.
Presently, the state legislature is now weighing its options regarding banning the sale of flavored tobacco products and receiving a higher ranking from the association.
The Vermont General Assembly could soon take action on bill S.24. Under this proposal, the sale of all flavored tobacco products, including electronic nicotine delivery devices, would be prohibited. According to the proposal’s introductory form, “this bill proposes to ban the retail sale of flavored cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and e-liquids.”
