In the eyes of a billion dollar industry, we are nothing more than replacement tobacco users for the thousands of Americans who die each year due to tobacco use. You can make your own poster about why YOU are not a replacement by going to http://www.kickbuttsday.org/generator/ Here’s SSHS Stand Tall leader Tammy Sutton’s poster:
Healthy Communities Coalition sponsors free tobacco use cessation classes through our friendly, trained staff, and also sponsors youth Stand Tall teams in each high school in Lyon County. The youth teams involve their peers and communities in learning about the health effects of tobacco and other drug use. For more information, contact Healthy Communities at 246-7550.
