High Tech Smoking Prevention

This is a short article about a school preventing students from smoking in the school bathrooms with a high tech device that detects the heat from lighters and matches. The device alerts the principle who then can catch the students. This is an effective and relatively cheap way to prevent students from smoking in a school. This would only be necessary given a severe problem.

A PDF file informing schools how they can help prevent student smoking and assist students with quitting. This is great information for a school to have because there are always some students who want to smoke or already smoke.

Activity Guide

Kick Butts Day is an event that schools could host to inform students about the harmful effects of tobacco use. This is similar to red ribbon week. I believe this is a great program that schools can participate in because the activities are appropriate for the age level and can keep the interest of the students. In the guide the different activities include: a boxing match, carnival, door decorating contest and living billboards.

Tobacco Free Kids

This is a website that has numerous articles pertaining to tobacco use and ways to prevent it. There is also articles informing people about the different changes that the government is trying to put into effect or have put into effect. One of the articles that I noticed is a $1 tax increase on all tobacco products. The money raised from this tax, if the bill passes, would be given to the school systems. This would be a great source of income for schools and prevent students from smoking because of the high costs involved.
