    Access to Cessation Services

The American Lung Association in California recognizes that these bold goals will only be met in California if these following three actions are taken by our elected officials:

  1. Increase the tobacco tax by $2 per pack and earmark funding for tobacco prevention and control, and tobacco-related disease research and treatments;
  2. Reduce the sale of tobacco products in California communities – including stronger restrictions on youth access, flavored tobacco products and electronic cigarettes; and
  3. Expand access to tobacco cessation treatments and services for all Medi-Cal recipients.
