"For decades, tobacco companies have used promotions, targeted marketing, and other tactics to unfairly increase access to and appeal of tobacco products for certain population groups. Discrimination, poverty, and other social conditions have also been linked to tobacco product use and can make it harder to quit.


These factors are linked to high levels of disease, disability, and death from tobacco use in some populationsā€”like Hispanic and Latino people and people with behavioral health conditions."
