Hong-Van Nguyen English Composition 102 Tobacco and Alcohol Advertising Since the surgeon general first declared tobacco dangerous to people’s health in the 1960s, various measures have been adopted to try to lower rates of youth tobacco use. Measures implemented in the past include minimum-age laws, education programs, and local cities banning cigarette-vending machines. Similar policies have been adopted in the past to address underage alcohol consumption, but many people under the age of 21 (the minimum drinking age) continue to use and abuse alcohol. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations and Kennedy’s bill say that alcohol and tobacco companies are consciously peddling dangerous and illegal products to children by using sports personalities, cartoon characters, or animal mascots in their commercials. They maintain that many of the companies recognize that the best way for them to attract new smokers and drinkers is to hook people when they are young.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
