Take the time to tell your representative to support H.R. 2339, the Protecting American Lungs and Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act, when it comes to the House floor for a vote this week.

Use of e-cigarettes by youth has escalated rapidly in recent years, placing a new generation at risk of nicotine addiction and tobacco use. This critical legislation would prohibit flavored tobacco products, including flavored e-cigarettes, flavored cigars and menthol cigarettes. The bill also contains other important provisions to address the use of tobacco products, including creating advertising and sales parity for all tobacco products and expediting the timeline for placing graphic health warnings on cigarette packs and advertisements.
