Sniffing snuff is harming communities

I am concerned about the increased use of snuff in our communities. It is a common practice among women of all ages. Now young girls are copying their mothers and sisters.

I recently met a woman whose addiction is causing her to suffer emotionally. She stuffs so much snuff into her nostrils that it runs down her nose onto her clothes.

Snuff is addictive. People think it calms the nerves, but it is just the addiction deceiving their minds.

Using snuff leads to nasal blockages and can cause cancer. Let's convince our children never to start and help users to quit.
