Destiny and Maya are the stars of this new video raising concerns about teens' easy access to tobacco products in some Milwaukee neighborhoods -- especially disproportionately black neighborhoods. They also talk about the impact of loved ones' smoking on them, with Maya saying her dad would never hurt her, yet he smoked and exposed her to second-hand smoke. "What made him quit was the harm it caused towards others and he just didn't like the smell anymore," Maya said.
Wisconsin Wins, with help from FACT members and allies, conducts compliance checks in stores that sell tobacco products to ensure that retailers aren't selling tobacco to teens or offering single cigarettes for sale. Last year, Wisconsin Wins youth did 389 compliance checks in Milwaukee. For more information, go to witobaccocheck.org.
