Illinois And Indiana AG's Working To End Youth Smoking
(Indianapolis, IN) -- Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is teaming up with Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller to try to end youth smoking. They're joining in with Legacy's truth youth smoking prevention campaign called "Finish It." Youth smoking rates are at their lowest levels in 22 years, but nine percent of teens still smoke and nearly all lifetime smokers have their first cigarette before they turn 18. Madigan says they want to see the first generation of tobacco-free teens. She says there are already restrictions to market tobacco to kids and they want to see the same restrictions on e-cigarettes.
