Tennessee Actions

Tennessee

Tobacco 21 is an important issue as nationally 95% of adult who smoke start before they turn 21. This time-period is when the brain is fully developing, including the parts responsible for decision making, impulse control, sensation seeking, and susceptibility to peer pressure.

Tennessee

Cities and counties in Tennessee are restricted from placing regulations on tobacco and smoking that are stronger than state law. This means that even if a county or municipality recognizes the need to protect its citizens from the hazards of secondhand smoke by limiting smoking in public spaces, parks, pools, and playgrounds, it cannot.
