What is one message you have for youth about their role in tobacco control?
I believe that we all have a testimony as youth in this generation because tobacco and vaping products are exposed to us at such a young age. It may be tempting for some to try it but once you learn the facts and tactics of the industry, you’ll want to enlighten your peers and policy makers who have the power to stop youth from getting into the trap.
