Fewer Wyoming teens smoke

Apr 4, 2012

New numbers show that Wyoming teenagers are smoking less.  New Kids Count Data shows that in 1995 nearly 40-percent of high school students smoked a cigarette once in the last month.  That number dropped to 22 percent in 2011.  State Tobacco Prevention Coordinator Joe D’Eufemia said Wyoming increased its spending in preventive efforts in the late 1990’s, but he said two other actions may have had a greater impact.
