Theress growing evidence that youth and Young adults Are More responsive to Price increases than older adults Gaughan said. The literature is Clear the higher cigarette prices discourages youth smoking. About 20 percent of adult kansans smoke according to data from the Kansas department of health and environment. About 13 percent of High school students in the state Are Active cigarette users according to the department.
