Federal Tobacco 21: Considerations for Tribal Communities

Date: 
Tuesday, March 9, 2021
Time: 
12:00 p.m. Central Time

On December 20, 2019, the federal government made changes to the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009 that increased the minimum legal sales age for all commercial tobacco products from 18 to 21. This amendment applies to all U.S. states and territories, and on all Tribal lands, leaving Tribal communities with much to consider. Join us as we discuss what this means now for Tribal communities, and how Tribes can continue to exercise their sovereignty through public health and policy considerations.
