This article discusses an analysis of preemptive state tobacco control legislation in the U.S. that prohibits localities from enacting more stringent tobacco control laws. Conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the analysis identified three types of state preemption: smoking in workplaces and public places; tobacco advertising; and youth access to tobacco products. It showed an increase in the number of states with preemptive provisions.
