Protect Our Youth
The tobacco industry is always looking for ways to get youth hooked on tobacco. They are considered easy targets and it’s working in Colorado. Six out of 10 high school students in Colorado who attempt to buy cigarettes are successful, leading to 4,900 becoming regular smokers each year before they are even 18 years old. It’s projected that 90,600 Colorado youth currently aged 17 and younger will die from smoking.
The nicotine in tobacco is highly addictive, making it easy to go from using tobacco occasionally to using it all the time.
