Gilchrist county 4-H'ers used Candy to Make an Impact

The Gilchrist County 4-H SWAT Club (Students Working Against Tobacco) learned about the dangers of candy flavored tobacco and how tobacco companies use it to get kids addicted to tobacco products.  Together the 4-H'ers and their club leader approached the Board of County Commissioners about this and helped get an ordinance passed in Gilchrist County that all candy flavored tobacco sold in the county has to be kept behind the counter so children and teens don't have easy access to it.
