Last September, I stayed at a high school in central Kentucky, I found a sign in the parking lot : "This is a tobacco-free school zone" I just finished interviewing a sixth-grade student", Jose", who spent his summer long weekend working in the tobacco farms. Jose is protected from tobacco in school. This is illegal, he walked into a store and bought a pack of cigarettes, until he was 18, but he can legally work in any tobacco farm, through his skin absorption of nicotine, in the age of 12, when it comes to protecting children from the dangers of tobacco farming, the U.
S. government and the tobacco companies are not doing enough. Thousands of children each year in the tobacco farms in the United States.

As a graduate student in public health, I learned more about the devastating effects of smoking on health. But I never heard how it affects the cultivation of tobacco workers.

If we want to make sure that our children grow up free of tobacco, we need to make children's tobacco farm free zone. Tobacco companies should adopt a clear policy prohibiting children under 18 from doing hazardous work on farms in their supply chains. The Congress and the Obama administration should adopt laws and policies to keep children out of work on tobacco farms dangerous.
