TORONTO, Sept. 14 /CNW/ - National Coalition Against Contraband Tobacco (NCACT) will be revealing the results of a study that examined cigarette butts collected from public grounds around high schools in Ottawa.
The study sheds new light on how easily teens can get access to contraband tobacco. Gary Grant, NCACT spokesperson and former Staff Superintendent of the Toronto Police Service will be unveiling the study.
Contraband tobacco can be found in communities across Ontario. These cheap and easy to get illegal cigarettes are being smuggled and sold in record numbers and quietly undermining government anti-smoking programs.
