Getting cozy with the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act

The Network for LGBT Health Equity
An insider’s view of informative info…

Hello all!

Over here at the Network we are VERY impressed with the user-friendliness of the FDA’s website on the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Act.

The Act, which became law in June 2009, gives the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to regulate the manufacture, distribution, and marketing of tobacco products to protect public health in the United States. The Tobacco Control Act does many things, including restricting tobacco sales to youth, inspection of tobacco companies, requires warning labels on tobacco products, and much more. For a full overview of the Act, click HERE.

The infograph, seen below, illustrates the history, rationale and major events associated with the Act.

(You can also download and print the infograph!)

And, if you want to poke around the Act or look up information, you can search by “audience”, “types of tobacco” and “topics” or the table of contents.
