FDA Basics Webinar: State Enforcement Program

The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) gives FDA the authority to contract with States and U.S. Territories to assist with compliance and enforcement activities to help limit the availability of tobacco products to young people.
