Website brings together adult tobacco consumers on tobacco public policy issues.
Altria’s tobacco operating companies launched Citizens for Tobacco Rights, a Website for adult tobacco consumers who are interested in information and advocacy on tobacco-related public policy issues.
Citizens for Tobacco Rights is a group of adult smokers and dippers joining together to get active on issues they care about. The group is supported by Philip Morris USA, U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co. and John Middleton. The Website intends to:
- Provide information on important tobacco issues like taxes and regulations that affect adult smokers and dippers.
- Encourage adult tobacco consumers to be active and involved in the legislative and regulatory process.
- Provide opportunities for adult smokers and dippers to come together and make their voices heard.
- Promote the importance of voting and civic participation.
Through this site’s predecessor tobaccoissues.com, more than 17,000 adult tobacco consumers contacted their legislators in 2011.
Philip Morris USA, U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company and John Middleton believe that it is important for adult tobacco consumers to make their voices heard on issues that affect them. Citizens for Tobacco Rights offers adult consumers information, tools and resources to help them get informed, involved and active on tobacco issues.
