Effect of Ending an Antitobacco Youth Campaign on Adolescent Susceptibility to Cigarette Smoking—Minnesota, 2002–2003
April 16, 2004 / Vol. 53 / No. 14
The April 16, 2004, issue of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) contains a report entitled, “Effect of Ending an Antitobacco Youth Campaign on Adolescent Susceptibility to Cigarette Smoking—Minnesota, 2002–2003."
The findings in this report demonstrate the impact of eliminating a Minnesota youth anti-tobacco campaign—only 6 months after that campaign ended—and suggest that state cutbacks in anti-tobacco campaigns might increase the susceptibility of young people to smoke, which is an important predictor of adolescent tobacco use.
