​Tobacco 21

​Tobacco 21 or T21 is a fairly new tobacco control effort in Arizona however it is gathering momentum.  On 06/02/2016 Yavapai Anti-Tobacco Coalition of Youth (YATCY) encouraged the Cottonwood City Council to pass an ordinance to raise the age to purchase tobacco products and e-cigarettes from 18 to 21.  Cottonwood is Arizona's 1st T21 Community!
​Effective 08/11/17 we are very proud to announce that the Cochise County Youth Health Coalition (DCrew) has encouraged the Douglas City Council to also pass an ordinance to raise the age to purchase tobacco products and e-cigarettes from 18 to 21.  Douglas is Arizona's 2nd T21 Community! 

​Other efforts in Arizona are on-going.

​The reasons for Tobacco 21 are numerous. 

Here's the national Tobacco 21 website (Tobacco21.org) with more information including a state-by-state analysis of Tobacco 21 status/achievements:
