Associate Professor Micah Berman and Assistant Professor Holly Jarman (University of Michigan) collaborated for an online op-ed with The Hill titled,  When writing a federal Tobacco 21 law, less is more.

“As public health academics, we were initially startled that McConnell, long a tobacco industry ally, would come out in favor of such a positive public health policy that could help reduce smoking and stem the surge in youth e-cigarette use. We became even more suspicious of the yet-unreleased bill once we saw the leading tobacco and e-cigarette companies lining up behind the effort.”
