MYTH: Tobacco Products are Expensive

Flavors (including Menthol), Product Availability, Youth

Dancing in a tobacco mart parking lot dressed as 49¢ Flavees and 99¢ Minteez Menthol Boxes to bust the myth that tobacco products are expensive, students from the Community Health Advocates School (CHAS) at August Hawkins High School show us that you’re never too broke to smoke, but that the health risks might be more than you’ve bargained for.
The Truth About Flavor is a youth leadership and media production pilot program in South Central Los Angeles about flavored cigarillos. A collaboration between Legacy, Public Matters, L. A. Freewaves, and students from Community Health Advocates School (CHAS) at Augustus Hawkins High School, it seeks to cultivate a cadre of youth health advocates who are motivated and poised to inform their community about the dangers of flavored cigarillos.
