Vermont State Law
The State of Vermont has made considerable progress in reducing smoking among youth and adults. This can be attributed in part to Vermont’s state level tobacco control laws. Vermont has laws in place that require tobacco retailers to obtain a license, restrict youth access to tobacco, limit second hand smoke exposure, and tax tobacco products. Although progress has been made in reducing rates of smoking, additional policy measures could be implemented to counteract the impact of the tobacco industry’s marketing efforts and to continue to reduce tobacco use. Municipalities in Vermont may adopt policies aimed at reducing tobacco use in their communities as authorized under relevant federal and state law.
