New York, NY —
The American Lung Association says that the city has some of the best anti-tobacco laws in the country. The only state with better scores is Maine. The annual rankings of the ``State of Tobacco Control'' report gives an ``A'' ranking for New York's efforts in three areas: smoke free air, youth access to tobacco and prevention and control spending. The state received a score of ``B'' for its cigarette taxes. Maine had A's in all four categories.
