Arizona Teens At Risk For Tobacco Use

CigarettesThe CDC says more than one in six Arizona teens either smokes or chews tobacco products, and a new report from the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids shows how new products are reaching young people – despite age and marketing restrictions.

Danny McGoldrick with the Campaign says some companies have added tobacco to their cigarette paper or wrapper, which qualifies it as a cigar – skirting federal regulations and aiming at the younger crowd.

McGoldrick says today's kids are twice as likely to be cigar-smokers as adults.
