Flavors Hook Kids
Dear [Decision Maker],
The evidence is clear:
Flavored tobacco is a marketing weapon. More than 80% of teens who have ever used tobacco started with a flavored product.3,100 Vermont kids still smoke. Our youth smoking rate is higher than the national average. Some counties are double the national average. Menthol is a flavor. 42% of middle school students and 46% of high school students who use tobacco products smoke menthol cigarettes.1 in 4 Vermont kids use some form of tobacco, according to the Vermont Health Department.E-cigarettes are the most widely used flavored products among high school students overall.
Protect our children from a lifetime of addiction. Tell lawmakers to restrict the sale of all flavored tobacco!
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
