Support TSET's #OK10in10 Effort

Posted on 11/08/2018

 

ODA is one of the more than 30 partner organizations supporting this initiative. And it’s achievable by bringing a diverse group of partners together to advocate for policy changes that will save lives, keep young people from starting to use tobacco and protect all Oklahomans from tobacco use and secondhand smoke. 

The Tobacco Stops With Me agenda to cut adult smoking to 10 percent in 10 years outlines the necessary steps Oklahoma should take to save lives and create a healthier future for our state. The initiative focuses on creating common sense solutions and modernizing policies to improve the health of all Oklahomans. Policy recommendations include:

  • Prohibit smoking in cars with children present
  • Remove exemptions in state law that allow smoking in bars, hotels and other businesses
  • Raise the minimum legal age to buy tobacco products to 21
  • Ban on all menthols and flavored tobacco
  • Cigarette price increases over the next decade
  • Strengthen enforcement against underage tobacco sales
  • Remove labor law protections for smokers
