Tobacco examine reveals
shops focusing on youth
I’m a member of the Youth Tobacco Advocacy and Coverage Undertaking. In 2016, my friends and we performed a survey in San Pablo to map out tobacco influences. We did this survey to indicate how tobacco is focusing on our communities and our youth. We introduced what we discovered to the San Pablo Metropolis Council in March.
There are 28 shops promoting tobacco inside 1,000 toes of one of many 9 faculties in San Pablo. Menthol cigarettes, low cost flavored mini cigars and digital smoking units are being focused at youth.
There are lots of cities and counties across the nation taking steps to guard their youth and neighborhood from a lifetime of dependancy. Research present that extra youth smoke when shops close to faculties promote tobacco merchandise. We hope that the outcomes of our survey in San Pablo assist information this dialog.
