Cigarettes

Tobacco Free Network of CNY

Middle and high school students in Fulton, the Institute of Technology in Syracuse and across the state today called attention to the billions of dollars of tobacco promotion in stores that is likely influencing kids to start smoking at the average age of 13.  Today is Seen Enough Tobacco Day, and students created displays aimed at raising awareness of tobacco placement and advertising.  Joe Wicks is with the Tobacco Free Network of Central New York, and says even pharmacies are partly to blame.
