Tobacco and Smoking (Teen Rights and Freedoms) (Library Binding)
Smoking is a hot button subject, especially when movies, T.V. and online shows, ads, and celebrities are shown partaking in long, dramatic drags from cigarettes and other smoking devices. While you need to be 18 years old to smoke legally in the U.S., when lead characters of a younger are seen smoking, the double messages abound. This volume carefully explores real and perceived teen rights related to tobacco and smoking. Readers will learn whether or not smoking is a right for teens, and examine the question of whether or not tobacco companies are targeting teens. They will also evaluate the impact of tobacco advertising on their age group.
