"The most effective way to reduce the harm is to deter tobacco use altogether. Stopping addiction before it starts is key. Therefore, FDA will focus on restricting the marketing and illegal sales of tobacco products to youth."

-- Dr. Lawrence R. Deyton, Director, FDA Center for Tobacco Products

Opportunity for Input: Development of Retailer Education Campaign

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) is developing a comprehensive retailer education campaign to raise awareness about new regulations regarding the sale and distribution of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. The retail community plays a direct role in helping us protect our kids from tobacco.

Thank you for joining us on May 26, 2010 for an online opportunity to discuss FDA communication with tobacco retailers. Your ideas, recommendations, questions, and insights will help us communicate more effectively with retailers.
