Description
In this radio ad from Maryland’s “Cigar Trap” campaign, a voiceover alerts listeners to a growing threat to youth by tobacco companies who are marketing flavored cigars. The announcer tells listeners that cigar smoking among Maryland youth has increased and nearly 80% of underage high school smokers use flavored products that come in candy flavors such as grape, mango and chocolate. These products are easily accessible to kids because they are sometimes sold individually and cheaply. His warning: Cigars, no matter the flavor, are as dangerous as cigarettes because they contain the same chemicals such as nicotine, arsenic and cyanide and can cause cancer, and youth should not get trapped by the sweet flavors of tobacco products because they can lead to addiction. He urges listeners to visit TheCigarTrap.com for more information.

SFX: Niños jugando en un área de recreo.

Voz del Locutor:

Hecho: Los Jóvenes de Maryland ahora fuman cigarros en el mismo porcentaje que cigarrillos. ¿Aún más inquietante? El consumo de cigarros se ha incrementado. ¿Por qué?

Se enfoca a los niños como objetivo mediante el uso de sabores - como uva, y chocolate. Cerca del 80% de fumadores menores de edad de la escuela secundaria consumen productos saborizados. Los sabores ocultan de manera atractiva la aspereza del tabaco. Estos pequeños cigarros con frecuencia se venden individualmente haciéndolos tan asequibles como golosinas.

Mucha gente cree que los cigarros son menos dañinos. La verdad es: Los cigarros contienen nicotina, cianuro y arsénico, y pueden ocasionar cáncer - exáctamente como los cigarrillos.

Todos los productos a base de tabaco, incluyendo los saborizados, son adictivos y conllevan los mismos riesgos para la salud que los cigarrillos. Independientemente de cómo los endulcen, los cigarros matan.
