The Missouri Partnership on Smoking or Health (MPSH)
is an advocacy coalition that works with various groups and organizations
on policy initiatives to reduce tobacco use in our state.
MPSH provides assistance to communities wanting to
become smokefree, working to reduce youth addiction to tobacco by making
it hard for youth to purchase tobacco products, restricting tobacco advertising,
and increasing tobacco taxes. MPSH also keeps a constant vigil on state
legislation that would take away the ability of communities to pass local
policies, known as preemption.
