Protect kids from smoking

PREV
NEXT

To The Editor:

Our youth are at an impressionable age, and should be protected from tobacco marketing, especially in stores and movies which glorify smoking. Research shows that kids who shop at stores with tobacco marketing two or more times a week are more likely to start smoking (www.tobaccofreenys.org). As a concerned parent of pre-teen and teenage children, I feel stores should have their tobacco marketing covered. Movie ratings should also reflect of there is any smoking in them so parents can monitor what their children are viewing in hopes of deterring them from smoking.
