YOUTH HAVE ACCESS
It is illegal to sell tobacco products to anyone under the age of 18, yet 33% of Colorado youth are currently using a tobacco product1. This makes us ask ourselves where and how kids are getting these products. More than 60% of Colorado kids under age 18 who tried to buy tobacco report being able to do so. And half were not even asked to show an ID.
