Listen, I will be the first to tell you that I hate cigarettes. I hate the smell, how your body is affected, all of it. I just hate it. This new initative is all about helping individuals become tobacco free as well as a tobacco free culture.
McLeod Disease Center was the first to join the initiative by having a tobacco free environment. A lot of times individuals dealing with substance abuse smoke tobacco and this could be a great initiative to help them on their road to recovery.
I would love to see Mecklenburg County be tobacco free. How about you?
