Mississippi Tobacco Free Coalition Forrest, Jones, Perry; Lamar and Marion; Covington and Smith Counties

The purpose of the Mississippi Tobacco Free Coalition is to prevent the initiation of tobacco use among youth, reduce exposure to secondhand smoke, promote tobacco cessation services, and eliminate tobacco-related disparities, by actively facilitating tobacco cessation and prevention efforts, while also addressing secondhand smoke exposure within the targeted counties. Via these programs we continue to support and strategically work towards a comprehensive statewide ordinance, while also assisting local municipalities.
