New Store Assessment for Vape Shops Released for Two-Week Open Comment Period
The long-awaited draft of the Standardized Tobacco Assessment for Retail Settings: Vape Shops (vSTARS) has arrived!
vSTARS is an observational store assessment form designed to measure product availability, flavors, marketing and health messaging present in vape shops and head shops. This instrument was modeled after the original STARS and can be completed by local, state, and federal tobacco control advocates or researchers. vSTARS collects data to inform policy and is not intended to assess compliance with regulations.
