National Kick Butts Day
The group at Walmart will be joining with others across the country to celebrate March 18th as National Kick Butts Day, where youth are encouraged to, “stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco” at more than 1,000 events planned by independent organizers across the United States and around the world.
According to the national Kick Butts organization more than 3,000 kids under 18 try smoking for the first time and 700 kids become new regular, daily smokers every single day. Tobacco use is still the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., killing more than 480,000 people every year.
