Tobacco Prevention and Control connects health professionals, and the public to valuable resources including smoking cessation, reports detailing the effects of tobacco use, educational materials, and guidance on community-based tobacco prevention programs. The mission of the program is to improve the health of Minnesotans by promoting the reduction of tobacco use. The Tobacco Prevention and Control program works on:

  • Funding non-profits and local public health agencies with tobacco grants to reach the populations most in need
  • Reducing exposure to secondhand smoke by restricting its use in certain venues
  • Raising the price of tobacco products to better reflect its cost to society
