Tobacco marketing in community stores drives tobacco use. To reduce harmful exposure to tobacco marketing, communities may regulate where and how tobacco is sold. These “point of sale” (POS) policy interventions include regulating the number, type, and location of tobacco retailers, and limiting the sale of flavored tobacco products. Evidence shows that POS policy interventions limit tobacco company influence on the community, and thus reduce youth tobacco initiation and promote health equity. Visit our resources below to learn more about POS policy options for controlling exposure to harmful tobacco marketing in your community.
