As an introduction to the subject area of tobacco and young people we would recommend the following materials: Statistics: smoking trends – children; ASH Scotland position paper on raising the minimum legal purchasing age for tobacco; and SPICe briefing 05/25: smoking in children and young people: a comparative paper.
Below is a wider collection of materials that focus on the issues associated with tobacco and young people, and these are arranged alphabetically. These materials cover health statistics, policies and regulations.
If you are a young person researching a school project or looking for help to stop smoking, then visit the ASH Scotland resources for young people page.
Search the NHS Scotland e-Library to look for more resources on tobacco and young people.
