Massachusetts teens fight back against tobacco companies

BOSTON, Mass. (WWLP) Springfield Central High School students told 22Newsthat tobacco products arecheapand easy to get. Flavored tobacco, cheap jerseys they say, are less expensive than a bag of chips.

You have to be at least 18 years oldto buy tobacco products in most towns, but that doesn stop manyyoungerteens from smoking cigarettes. Just take it from16 year old Giuseppe Santaniello, a sophomore at Springfield Central High School.

More than 200high school students rallied at the State House for Butts Day. They want to ban the sale of flavored tobacco in convenience stores and gas stations statewide.

“Bubblegum, there’s like Pina Colada. There’s just random flavors that attract youth because people see it and they’re like, wow it’s like the candy flavor that I love, said Springfield Central High School senior Gianghi Lenguyen.

Each day, nearly 4,000teenagers will try their first cigarette in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That why the Massachusetts Senate is considering a bill to raise the statewide smoking age from18 to 21.

“I think it’s a good idea. I think it’s something that we’re going to have to debate. There are certain issues that come up and arguments that come up. (Do you support it?) At this point, I think I’m pretty close to being in support of it, said state Senator James Welch (D West Springfield).

More than eighty Massachusetts towns have raised the minimum legal age to buy tobacco to 21, including Amherst and South Hadley.
