Impact of Tobacco Law
The research into the youth consumption of Tobacco have been extensive since 1992 with the notion to try and find the best measures to attack the issue and make it permanent. The researches did focus on measures such as the use of the community, mass media and statewide campaigns to help get the message across to the general public (Berman, 2016). It is evident that the previous investigations did prove that there was a minimal response and change in the society because the programs did not get to the people. In addition, there was an introduction of stricter rules that did involve the prohibition of the companies and dealers from getting the tobacco to the youths, addition of payment of fines and even jail terms (Reddy, Yadav, Arora & Nazar, 2012). The variations in the ways that they do connect did make changes which did influence the way that they do connect which is a major advantage to the way that they make the responses. The researchers in the past did not provide the proper response and results from the market thus it was difficult to keep up with the reasons that contributed to the failure or stalling of the programs (Berman, 2016). It is important to understand that the concept of tobacco smoking is inbuilt in the society and uprooting it will require the participation of the entire public starting from the adults to the youths that will help in the spreading and upholding the law.
The main working theory will involve trying to understand “how the society is perceiving the tobacco law and how it is going to affect the youths from consumption of tobacco”. It is evident that the tobacco crisis among the youths in Florida is on the rise which is a major issue. It is important to understand that the research will be focusing on the platform because it will help in the proper research which will help in the collection of data. The framework will help to guide the way that the society is trying to curb the problem and how the youths have been living in the past before the law and how they are behaving now that the law is imposed which is a major challenge. In addition, it will be vital to depict the originality of the law, its development and how it came to being which is vital to make sure that there is a major direction to the way that the society is planning its functions.
The main understanding from the introduction of the law is that it is bound to help make changes in the society which makes it vital to understand and integrate the positioning of the society. It is important to make changes because it helps in making sure that there is a major direction for the interactions in the society. The tobacco consumption by the youths in Miami is on the rise but it is as a result of lose morals in the society and the lack of proper supervision and direction in the society. It is important to understand that the society is making a major change and move with the law that seeks to appeal to the entire society to be on the lookout about the consumption of tobacco by youths. There is also a plan of making sure that the pandemic is eliminated and how to help the youths get back to their life without much problems.
