Description
This collection documents the activities of the Tobacco Education Program of the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services (MCTEP).
Background
The Tobacco Education Program of the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services (MCTEP) is one of the Local Lead Agencies (LLAs) designated by the California State legislature through the California Department of Health, Tobacco Control Section, to create tobacco education programs and receive Proposition 99 educational moneys. Proposition 99 was a California statewide referendum passed in 1988 that raised the excise tax on tobacco sales. Proposition 99 added an additional 25-cent tax on each package of cigarettes and a proportional tax increase on other tobacco products. This tax raised California's tobacco tax to be among the highest in the United States and designated that a portion of the tax moneys would go for anti-tobacco health education projects. As an LLA, MCTEP coordinates local tobacco education activities. It gives technical assistance and training upon request to community clinics, libraries, school nurses, city governments and organizations serving the public, and to counselors working with youth.
