unfortunately, there’s been a huge increase of Zhu Ling.
not just in the high schools, but down into the middle schools into young kids.
one of the things we see from the news stories coming out, is that these companies have been specifically targeting young kids. investing money in young kids, knowing that they can get them addicted something that is going to be a lifelong income flow for them.
Right now, we were seeing a real drop-off in youth smoking but now we’re seeing an increase.
