Baltimore City Tries to Ban Sale of Flavored Tobacco Near Schools
Maryland Tobacco News > Baltimore City Tries to Ban Sale of Flavored Tobacco Near SchoolsTags:
Health legislators in Baltimore City report that roughly half of city schools are located within 500 feet of a tobacco store. By selling flavored products such as mint and bubble gum, underage children are much more tempted to use tobacco products. With every 1 in 6 children using tobacco products in high school and more than 20% of stores selling tobacco products to minors, the city feels that they need to take another measure to reduce the number of underage tobacco users.
