Laura Redman, Health Justice Director says: “Tobacco use causes devastating and preventable diseases in communities across New York City, and continues to disproportionately affect low-income communities and communities of color.  Local government programs to curb tobacco use — including Medicaid coverage for smoking cessation program– have already had a demonstrable positive effect.  The bold steps proposed in this package of legislation will further reduce tobacco-related illness in our city.”
