Targeting youth Smokeless tobacco companies often target younger people with their marketing campaigns. Products such as Snus are systematically marketed to younger people. This marketing takes advantage of the fact that, while the current young generation grew up with the knowledge that smoking causes cancer and heart attacks they do not yet know the health risks of other forms of tobacco. Tobacco companies cleverly target their advertisements toward inducing younger consumers to start buying their products. For example, in 2001 and 2002, The United States Smokeless Tobacco Company ran advertisements for its Rooster brand in Rolling Stone and Sports Illustrated respectively. Slogans included “Cock-A-Doodle Freakin' Do,” “Where's the Chicks,” and “Birds of a Feather Party Together.”
Baseball Players' Use Effect on Youth
There is debate over whether players should be banned from using tobacco products during the games. The Major League Baseball Players Association disagrees, claiming it is a legal substance and therefore is acceptable to be used during games. Harvard School of Public Health professor, Gregory Connolly, however, says “the use of smokeless tobacco by players has a powerful role model effect on youth particularly among young males in sport, some of whom ironically remain addicted in future careers as professional athletes.” According to Connolly, ¾ of Minor League players do not support allowing the use of chewing tobacco during games, and ⅔ of Major League players (where it is currently still allowed) support abolishing it.
Many believe that the widespread use of chewing tobacco by baseball players has led to a rampant increase in youth, and particularly teen, use. Of 14 million users of smokeless tobacco, 12 million users are under the age of 21. Six million users began use before the age of 13. Additionally, teen use of smokeless tobacco has increased, while use of all tobacco products by teens has decreased. This is true especially among white and hispanic males. In 1970, five times as many 65-and-older males used smokeless tobacco as 18-to-24-year-olds did (12.7% of the population were 65+ male users, 2.2% of the population were 18-24 male users). More specifically, moist snuff increased for males ages 18–24 from 1% of the population to 6.2% of the population, while 65+ male users decreased from 4% to 2.2%. Today, 13.4% of high school boys and 2.3% of high school girls are users of spit tobacco. In Kentucky, 26.7% of high school boys are users, and in West Virginia 27.0% are users.
