This article introduces results from a long-term anti-smoking program that was aimed at reducing youth smoking by using schools as the vehicle for proving prevention information. The program was said to use a best practices approach that was guided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Cancer Institute. The 15-year long study tracked the same students from 3rd grade to high school completion and found no effect in changing the smoking behavior of these students.
