WEBINAR – Research Into Action: Tobacco Minimum Floor Price Law and Adult Smoking Prevalence
July 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
CADCA, along with its Geographic Health Equity Alliance and in partnership with Counter Tools, has invited Dr. Shelley Golden and Derek Carr, JD, to discuss the findings of their recent article, “Simulating the Impact of a Cigarette Minimum Floor Price Law on Adult Smoking Prevalence in California,” published in Nicotine & Tobacco Research in 2020. The article found that as the floor price of cigarettes increased, prevalence of tobacco use and consumption of cigarettes decreased, more among individuals in households below 250% federal poverty level. Dr. Golden and Mr. Carr will discuss how coalitions can use minimum floor price laws as an effective non-tax policy change strategy for reducing consumption of tobacco or other substances and decreasing socioeconomic disparities in tobacco use in their communities.
