BK teens take politicians on tour against tobacco

BROOKLYN - Brooklyn teenagers are taking local politicians on a walking tour today to fight back against tobacco ads in their neighborhood.

The American Lung Association and the Brooklyn Smoke-Free Partnership are joining the students in Williamsburg to showcase cigarette campaigns at area bodegas.

Studies show that kids are twice as likely as adults to notice and remember tobacco ads, which could make them more susceptible to the habit.
