Maryland PIRG urges you to support SB177/HB134  to protect kids from tobacco addiction by taking all flavored tobacco products off the market. 

The tobacco industry has evolved over time to create new, highly addictive products, but one thing hasn’t changed–flavored tobacco products hook kids. A government study found that 81% of youth who have ever used tobacco started with a flavored product, and most tobacco users start young.1

Flavored products helped fuel the e-cigarette epidemic among youth.
