See Butts? Kick ‘Em in the Can!

 

The North Georgia Health District joins the Georgia Department of Public Health and teachers, youth leaders and health advocates around the state on national Kick Butts Day to urge everyone to kick cigarette butts in the can, and to:

 

-   Raise awareness of the problem of tobacco use in Georgia;

-   Encourage youth to stay tobacco-free;

-   Ask school districts to adopt the Georgia Model 100% Tobacco Free Schools policy; and

-   Urge tobacco users to call the Georgia Tobacco Quit Line at 1-877-270-STOP.
