Students from North Bethesda and Julius West Middle Schools in Montgomery County came together to watch a town hall about the e-cigarette and flavored tobacco issues in Montgomery County.
There is proposed legislation that will further restrict youth access to tobacco, which helps make our county youth healthier and activists wanted to learn more about how to help restrict youth access to tobacco.
Because these youth are directly impacted by the e-cigarette craze and see their friends getting hooked, they wanted to act themselves. So, in addition to watching the town hall, they also wrote to their county officials and told them that they supported tobacco restrictions that protected them and their friends from tobacco products.
These middle school students show us all that we can all do our part to speak up for the heart healthy policies we believe in!
