It’s Official. New Mexico Public Schools Are 100% Nicotine-Free.

That means no nicotine products for anyone, anytime, anywhere

New Mexico’s new rule requiring a comprehensive nicotine policy for all public schools is a historic victory for everyone. Now, the use, possession, and distribution of nicotine products, including vapes, are prohibited on public school campuses 24/7. Special thanks to the student advocates, partner organizations, and many others who worked alongside us to make this possibility a reality.

News worth celebrating: New Mexico students are now fully protected from the effects of vaping and nicotine on public school grounds.

24/7 logo

The 24/7 campaign is an initiative by the New Mexico Department of Health using Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement Funds to help all schools in New Mexico understand, adopt, implement, and enforce comprehensive nicotine-free policies. Comprehensive policies support a school environment that is truly free from nicotine products—including electronic cigarettes—24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This type of policy is critical to creating a truly nicotine-free learning environment for students.
