SLATI (State Legislated Actions on Tobacco Issues) is an extensively researched and invaluable source of information on tobacco control laws and policy, and is the only up-to-date and comprehensive summary of state tobacco control laws.
We are proud to say that the annual SLATI hard copy report is currently in its 23rd edition. First published in 1988 it has been an exclusive publication of the American Lung Association since 1996.
