Some 80 percent of those who use tobacco as adults began before they were 18. However, funds from the Master Settlement with the tobacco industry have enabled many states to develop anti-smoking programs that have resulted in a substantial decline in youth tobacco use. Snell (criminal justice, U. of Houston-Downtown) looks at big tobacco's history of hooking kids and summarizes the FDA's investigation of the industry's deceptive practices. He shows that the future of youth tobacco policy depends on the continued funding of prevention programs at the state and local level, and demonstrates how the industry is shifting its marketing approach to minority populations and developing nations.
