Confronting Youth Tobacco use in Massachusetts

Last week during Kick “Butts” Day, an event designed to expose the impact tobacco has on our teenagers, the Gloucester Youth Council stopped by my office at the State House.  The high school group shared some pertinent information on the subject, and I very much enjoyed our conversation.  The students were engaging, and provided me with some thought provoking information.

After our discussion I accompanied the Gloucester Youth Council down to the Senate Chamber, where we took the above posted picture at the rostrum and I provided a brief history of the State House and the Massachusetts State Senate.
