If you take part in the study, you will be asked to complete three brief (10-minute) online surveys over a six-month period. The surveys will occur approximately every 3 months. The surveys will ask questions about your tobacco use, recent alcohol and other drug use. The surveys will also ask about your beliefs about substance use and opinions about policies to reduce substance use. The surveys will ask whether you have seen health messaging about substance use and what you know about substance use policies in Vermont.
In these surveys, you may feel uncomfortable being asked about sensitive issues like substance use. If you participate, you will be paid up to $50 in online gift cards for completing all three surveys.
