Comments:The high risk of youth on tobacco, alcohol and other types of illicit drug abuse are especially prevalent among Native Americans and inner city Hispanics. A random data gathering between the ages of 8-18 and 19-25 group among these high risk youths and young adults is needed on tobacco abuse from advertisements. Some Native Americans have established written language similar to Spanish and prevention efforts should be written in their languages. Investigation/audit into false advertisement and methods of advertisement that attracts the most vulnerable by corporations, contractors, and businesses should be thoroughly canvassed. This investigation/audit will further provide the best practice in reducing tobacco and other types of illicit drug abuse among the youths of America.
