Tobacco Industry Youth Smoking Prevention Programs

There is a substantial evidence in the tobacco industry documents that the industry uses "youth smoking prevention programs" and "life skills" training to deflect legislative and regulatory efforts to reduce smoking, and for public relations purposes, rather than out of concern for youth smoking rates. According to industry documents, these programs are designed to impress political leaders and give the appearance that the industry is being "responsible" on the issue of youth smoking.
