Monday, Dec. 13, 2021
6-6:30 p.m. MT
Please join us Dec. 13 at 6 p.m. MT for a short learning session where we’ll talk about the youth e-cigarette problem and options to reduce use.
Tobacco companies have always targeted teenagers, knowing they need replacement tobacco users. It’s no different today but like many things, tobacco products are evolving too. While use of traditional cigarettes has gone down, use of e-cigarettes has rocketed up. Out of 44 states participating in a national survey, New Mexico ranked third highest in high school students’ use of e-cigarettes, with one in three high school students using e-cigarettes.
Let’s work together to reduce that. Come learn ways our lawmakers can help us to reduce youth tobacco use!
