The American Lung Association’s (ALA) State of Tobacco Control 2013 is a report card that evaluates state and federal tobacco control policies by comparing them against targets based on the most current, recognized criteria for effective tobacco control measures, and translating each state’s relative progress into a letter grade of A through F. A grade of “A” is assigned for excellent tobacco control policies while an “F” indicates inadequate policies.
