The Center for Public Health Systems Science (CPHSS) at Washington University in St. Louis and the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium have created two new resources for your work in tobacco control. Topics for these guides were identified as high-priority areas by an advisory work group of local, state, and national tobacco control experts. These tobacco control guides can be found on our website at www.publichealthlawcenter.org and at the CPHSS website at cphss.wustl.edu. Please post them in upcoming newsletters or disseminate them as you see fit. Thank you!

Pricing Policy. A 32-pg. guide that Includes tools and resources on how to implement policies that effectively raise the cost of tobacco products.
