Report shows decline in youth smoking, but work remains

ed tobacco control groups with funding to launch an aggressive anti-smoking campaign - adolescent smoking in California showed a significant decrease compared with the national rates, particularly among adolescent males.

According to Leischow: "The evidence indicates that sustained programs work when they address the full range of influences on youth tobacco use, such as tobacco-free policies, active parent and community involvement, school-based programs, cessation services, and media to counter tobacco advertising. But the monograph reminds us that there is no easy solution for reducing youth smoking. Tobacco control organizations and researchers must continue to find answers and implement comprehensive policies and programs that are proven effective."
