Tobacco Is Changing

The state’s Department of Health Services recently launched an awareness campaign called “Tobacco is Changing.” The Fond du Lac County Health Department is helping promote that campaign. County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says it’s aimed at the candy-flavored tobacco products tobacco companies are marketing.  With the packaging for those types of tobacco products it is very similar to a candy like Skittles. Mueller says it is misleading and could result in sales to younger people that are unaware of what they might be buying. Parents are encouraged to have a talk with their kids about those types of products. Talking points are available at the website.
