As a result of increased cigarette taxation and regulation, the tobacco industry and a growing number of consumers are turning to a variety of other tobacco products, including flavored little cigars, dissolvables, and e-cigarettes.  What can state and local communities do to regulate these non-cigarette tobacco and nicotine delivery products?  This webinar provides an overview of local and state policy options, including youth access restrictions, smoke-free measures, sales restrictions, and pricing initiatives; presents a few examples of recent legislation; and examines industry practices and hot issues related to the regulation of these emerging tobacco products.
