Tobacco & Vaping Prevention

As the leading preventable cause of death in the US and NC, it is critical that we do more to confront tobacco use among adults and teenagers. Over 1.4 million adults and 70,000 high school students in NC smoke cigarettes, and over 14,000 North Carolinians die each year as a direct result of tobacco use, costing the state $3.81 billion in medical costs and $4.24 billion in lost productivity annually. The Community Health Coalition supports arresting these numbers and increasing statewide tobacco control programs that will save lives and ease the financial, medical, and personal burdens of tobacco on our state.
