Tobacco Free Mass is Massachusetts’ only statewide coalition dedicated to fighting tobacco and nicotine and their devastating effects. Our members are public health entities, hospitals, businesses, health care providers, and private citizens. We have made significant progress since our coalition was formed nearly 25 years ago, and we are not finished yet–we are dedicated to ending the tobacco burden in Massachusetts.
Tobacco Free Mass is advocating for legislation that would protect young people from becoming addicted to nicotine, prevent exposure to secondhand smoke, and help smokers quit. Right now, we are focusing on restoring the budget to the Massachusetts Tobacco Cessation and Prevention program and passing a statewide law to protect young people from the tobacco industry. Learn more about our advocacy efforts — and how you can speak out.
From the voter-led passage of the first tobacco tax in Massachusetts to the statewide ban on smoking in workplaces, tobacco policy has always been driven by regular people working together. Join us and be part of the movement!
