Grammy's Say No to E-Cigarettes
February 8, 2021

On January 7th, the University of California - San Francisco sent a letter signed by Smoke Free Movies (USA) and most of its national partners (AMA, AAP, TFK, ALA, AHA, ANR) to the Recording Academy of America raising the issue of including e-cigarettes in the gift bags at the Grammy Awards.


Dr. Stanton Glantz from the University of California - San Francisco received the following letter from Neil Portnow, President and CEO of the Recording Academy:


Dear Dr. Glantz,


Thank you for your letter of January 7, 2011. We believe that you will be pleased to know that the celebrity gift bags for the 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards this year will not include any electronic or e-cigarette merchandise.


We commend you and sincerely appreciate the work that you and your colleagues do to promote the good health of our citizens.


Kind regards,


Neil Portnow



Kudos to Dr. Glantz and the Amercian Smoke Free Movies team for attaining this support!



Every day 4,800 kids aged 11–17 try their first cigarette and 2,000 become regular smokers.
