Tobacco is Changing

The Next Generation of Addictive Tobacco Products

Electronic cigarettes. Little cigars. Sweet candy flavors. The next generation of addictive tobacco products is here, and most of them don’t look anything like a pack of cigarettes. Tobacco has evolved so fast, it’s tough for parents to recognize tobacco when they see it—and even tougher to talk to your kids about the terrible damage tobacco products can do. But that can change right here.

The letter detailed e-cigarettes' health harms for youth, outlined steps school districts can take to address the issue, and provided resources on instituting comprehensive tobacco-free school policies, integrating e-cigarettes into health curriculum, and connecting addicted youth with cessation resources.
