Dignity and Rights
The VSFA is nonjudgmental and will fight for the rights of all Virginia residents and vendors wishing to reduce the harms resulting from smoked tobacco usage. Users of smoked tobacco are people we all know mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends or coworkers. These users do not give up their basic human rights simply because they have chosen to smoke. Ignoring science and technology due to opposing morals and beliefs deliberately inflicts harm on people who smoke tobacco products. This approach creates and exacerbates risk and harm for the users.
