Maryland Kids “Kick Butts”


During "Kick Butts," youngsters encourage their peers to stay away from smoking, and educate peers and their community about tobacco's harmful effects. Kick Butts Day is not only a national event -- it has even spread internationally.  In the state of Maryland, youth in all counties participated in activities such as marching through towns to educate about the dangers of tobacco use, picking up cigarette butt litter, and manning youth-run tables advocating for freedom from messages targeting youth by tobacco companies.
