But what about the children?

Over at the But What About the Children? Campaign website, an interesting online discussion recently ensued between proponents of I-502 and the campaign staff.

The universal goal of tobacco education campaigns rests solely on an “abstinence-only approach”: to persuade adolescents not to start smoking and to help smokers quit. That I-502 would dictate to the public health department an approach that defies evidence-based, research-based public health education programs is deeply troubling.
