Dangers of Tobacco

Tobacco use is a major public health concern. Tobacco kills more Americans each year than alcohol, cocaine, crack, heroin, homicide, suicide, car accidents, fires, and AIDS combined. The Tobacco Prevention and Education Program is one of the many local lead agencies funded by and working under the guidance of the California Tobacco Control Section of the Department of Health Services.

It is our goal to work within the state’s guidelines to maximize the success of our program. Find out more about the dangers of smoking.
