ANSR is dedicated to reducing the human and economic costs of commercial tobacco*, nicotine and other drug use in Minnesota. Our core commitments are: 

  • to protect young Minnesotans from a lifetime of addiction;
  • to ensure that all Minnesotans can breathe clean, smoke-free air everywhere; and
  • reduce health inequities and other disparities in relation to commercial tobacco, nicotine and other drugs.

*When referring to tobacco in our work, we are referring to commercial tobacco products and not tobacco used for sacred purposes by Indigenous communities.
