The 10 U.S. States Most Addicted To Cigarettes

Written by Julia Austin



Alabama’s youth smoking rate is one of the highest in the country. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that around 20% of high school kids are smokers. In response to that shocking number, many colleges have prohibited smoking on campus, including Troy University, Miles College and Auburn University. However, off campus, smokers can light up in workplaces, restaurants and bars. It doesn’t help that the state has some of the lowest cigarette taxes in the country.
