I am really surprised right now that 12 year old kids are smoking already. They are so young and they started smoking and I just want to know what influence them to smoke and everything and so many other young people are smoking as well. By 2002 it said 12 year old kinds went to 32 % and then 2005 50 %. The numbers are increasing fast and a lot and it really needs to be stopped.
NIDA’s first study was in 1979 when they reported that even 12 year olds were smoking, 5.4%, 15 year olds, 26.7% and 18 year olds 40.1%. By 2002, of even 12 year olds, 32% were smoking and by 2005 about 50% of under age youths were using.
