The Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids is showing their leadership, once again in the professional baseball arena. Following their involvement in removing tobacco from the San Francisco Giants stadium in 2015 and other successes in the 2016 season, at the beginning of the 2017 season, there will now be 14 out of 30 MLB stadiums that have gone tobacco free.

While speaking with Kevin O’Flaherty at the National Conference on Tobacco or Health, he seemed optimistic of their progress within the League and the reason they are so dedicated to removing tobacco from professional baseball. Youth participating in sports are influenced by their sport’s professional athletes. When young players see widespread tobacco use among their idols, it is only logical to know that they are at an elevated risk of picking up the habit.

"Finish it!" with immediate steeply higher tobacco taxes plus T21. Teenagers and twentysomethings on an allowance or in entry level jobs are easily priced out of the tobacco market and by the time their incomes increase later they are past the age when 90% of nicotine addicts start smoking. This will create a tobacco-free generation.

If you can serve in the military you can smoke a cigarette.
