The House has already passed the Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act. Now, it’s time for the Senate to act. Endorsed by the National Education Association and more than 170 other education, public health, civil rights and parents organizations, this bill would place new restrictions on the marketing of e-cigarettes (specifically making it illegal to market, advertise, or promote any e-cigarette products to anyone younger than 21) and ban flavors in tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes.
