New Smoking Report Released

REGIONAL (WGGB) – The CDC has released a new report regarding smoking in Massachusetts.

The report which can be seen here reveals a number of startling figures. For example according to the CDC 80-percent of the people that smoke in the state began smoking before their 18th birthday.

Also roughly 16% of all high school students in Massachusetts smoke, which is 2% higher than the number of Adults that light up.

Now this report was created to find out how to curb smoking in Rural Communities.
