The Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services contracted with Wheeler Clinic's Connecticut Clearinghouse to conduct a comprehensive Tobacco Merchant Education Campaign. A key element of the campaign is the Tobacco Merchant and Community Education Steering Committee led by the Clearinghouse.  Membership includes tobacco retailers, state agency partners, and local coalitions. 

 

The Tobacco Merchant Education Campaign contains information on Connecticut's tobacco laws for owners, managers and employees of establishments that sell tobacco products and electronic nicotine delivery systems. The campaign materials include an educational training on the law, the Notice of Connecticut Tobacco Law, cash register stickers and door decals.

Contact Connecticut Clearinghouse at 1.800.232.4424 to request educational materials.
