To The Editor:
My name is Emily Streeter, and I believe that we should cover up the tobacco power wall in Heuvelton. I think this because if children see this, they may think it is okay to smoke, or it will tempt them into smoking more.
Did you know that in 2006, tobacco companies spent $12.5 million nationally on advertising, promotions and rice discounts for wholesalers and retailers? Smoking causes cancer and health problems which can kill people or cause them permanent health damage Also, tobacco companies place most of their advertising where young people shop in convenience stores where 75 percent of teenagers shop at least once a week. Please help keep our children and teenagers safe.
