You can use the following social media messaging examples to advocate against preemption laws:

  • Communities must be allowed to protect their children from the tobacco industry’s manipulative marketing.  

  • I know that every community faces different challenges with youth tobacco consumption. That’s why it’s vital that local leaders are empowered to take action to regulate tobacco products. 

  • Tobacco use is a leading cause of preventable death and preemptive laws deprive communities of the tools they need to protect children’s health. 

  • Each community faces unique health challenges, that’s why communities should be at the table to decide their own restrictions on tobacco products to protect their children.
