To the editor:
It was with great sadness and surprise that I read the article entitled “County snuffs out teens’ tobacco resolution” in the Jan. 4, 2012 edition of the Williston Pioneer. Having grown up in Williston, I have great interest as to what my family members are exposed.
As a Registered Nurse, high school teacher, S.W.A.T. advisor and one who has lost several family members to tobacco use, I was disappointed in the commission’s rejection of the resolution. Almost 89 percent of tobacco users begin using by age 18.
