The Tobacco Industry's New Tricks

The Tobacco Industry has changed their game to keep smokers addicted and entice our kids with advertising and marketing appeals.

The Tobacco Industry’s New Tricks:

  • Chocolate, grape and strawberry-flavored “little cigars” that sell for less than $2.00 a pack.
  • Tobacco products that look like candy and can be sold in the candy isle.
  • E-cigarettes that can be sold to children under 18 years of age.

The Tobacco Industry hasn't given up. Neither will we.

Educate your family and community and spread the message: None of these products are safe.
