Volunteers from across the Commonwealth gathered at the Massachusetts State House on Tuesday. They spoke with their Representatives about a bill that will help prevent our youth from becoming addicted to tobacco products. These volunteers need your support!
Their ask of our Representatives is clear: Protect Massachusetts’ kids from tobacco by:
- Increasing the state wide age of sale for tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, from 18 to 21.
- Including e-cigarettes in smoke-free workplace laws.
- Preventing establishments that provide healthcare services, such as pharmacies, from selling tobacco products.

Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
