Roughly 1,000 of the estimated 4,000 who start using tobacco every day in the U.S. are under 18, he said, "so clearly they are targeting children." Sorry but this is simply a guess and has no factual evidence to support it. Kids don't start smoking because they see a display, a movie, play a game. They start smoking because a friend does it thus peer pressure, simple curiosity or to look cool.

Pagan,
Does that mean we should ignore tobacco addiction? It is one of the most preventable causes of health problems in the US. Improving air quality is important and a bit more complex.
