Point of Purchase Tobacco Marketing

Thursday, July 29, 2010  
There has been a recent surge of interest about possible state and local initiatives to restrict and regulate point-of-purchase or retailer-based marketing of tobacco products—both to supplement the new FDA restrictions and to take advantage of the fact that the new FDA tobacco law sharply reduced the FCLAA preemption of state and local measures to restrict cigarette advertising and promotions. Along those lines, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has updated its factsheet on tobacco industry at point of purchase, which is available at the following link:

Much of the data and research cited in the factsheet should be very useful not only for showing the need for new retailer-based restrictions but to create the kind of legislative record and findings necessary to best protect any new restrictions from legal challenges (especially those based on the First Amendment or other constitutionality claims).
