The Nicotine and Cannabis Policy Center is delighted to present our latest webinar, which explores methods for “Mobilizing Voices to Support Flavored Tobacco Restrictions”.

Dr. Sabrina L. Smiley - Flavors Through the Lens of Health Equity: Efforts around flavored tobacco restrictions are often viewed differently in communities of color. How can we respond to concerns like over-policing and unjust criminalization, discrimination, and an illicit trade market?

Dr. Denise D. Payán - Flavors—The Need to Set the Record Straight: The FDA rulemaking process will open for comments and there is an ongoing need to raise our voices including the CA recall vote in November of 2022 for SB 793
