TAKE ACTION!

Don’t get it twisted. Big Tobacco doesn’t care about you or your health. To them, you’re just “a replacement smoker” — someone to take the place of someone else who’s already quit or died. You’re not a person. You’re a profit. And they’re already looking for replacements once they’ve used you up. 

It’s time to take action against Big Tobacco and help Delaware youth tobacco and nicotine-free.  Youth and Adults alike can take action within your communities.
