Tobacco 21 for Anchorage passes 11-0

July 25, 2019

Great news! The Anchorage Assembly took a stand against Big Tobacco and voted 11-0 in favor of raising the age of sale for tobacco products in Anchorage from 19 to 21.

We wanted to extend a big THANK YOU to all of the volunteers like you who contacted the Assembly about supporting this public health effort, which promises to help save lives from a preventable death and protect youth from a lifetime addiction. 

If you would like to send a “Thank you” note to the Anchorage Assembly for passing this important policy, simply send an email to [email protected] and all of the Assembly members will receive your message. 

The Tobacco 21 ordinance goes into effect on August 20, 2019. 

Thank you for your help in effecting a more positive future for Anchorage.
