Tobacco Retailers and Schools
More than 50% of tobacco retailers are located within 1,000 feet of an elementary or secondary school in New York State. This means, most kids can't avoid passing tobacco marketing to and from school every day.
Tobacco advertising is more prevalent inside tobacco retailers located near schools, according to the Surgeon General.
The more tobacco retailers there are near schools, the more likely children are to smoke.
