Placer Tobacco Prevention Coalition
The mission of the Placer Tobacco Prevention Coalition is to support the efforts of the Placer County Tobacco Prevention Program.
The Placer County Tobacco Prevention Program is working on implementing tobacco retail density and zoning policies in Placer County, with the goal to minimize the presence of future tobacco retailers within 1,000 feet of a school and within 500 feet of another tobacco retailer.
The Placer County Tobacco Prevention Program aims to decrease the use of tobacco among youth and young adults by incorporating youth in tobacco control and providing education about tobacco products to youth, parents/guardians, and teachers.
