NY: Mixed Grades On Tobacco Report Card

Albany, NY (WIBX) – New York state’s tobacco control policies received mixed grades in the American Lung Association’s State of Tobacco Control 2010 report.

New York earned a top score for its smokefree air law and a “thumbs up” for returning its cigarette tax to the highest in the nation.

But the state failed to make the grade on both tobacco prevention and control funding and coverage for cessation services, earning an “F” in both categories.

The American Lung Asociation says more than 25,000 New Yorkers are still dying every year from tobacco-caused disease.
