Tobacco-Free-Kids asks everyone to consciously protect kids from Tobacco use

Campaign for Tobacco-Free-Kids. Matt Myers is the President, and Lisa Henriksen PhD is a researcher at Stanford University School of Medicine led the research on tobacco retailers and their proximity to schools. The research was done in 30 US cities, with Seattle being one of them. Across the 30 cities, there are 31 times more tobacco retailers than McDonald’s restaurants and 16 times more than Starbucks. The tobacco industry continues to target our kids, and it’s important to stress with our Legislature that there need to be better regulations.
