Great American Smokeout is Today

Iowans are being encouraged to put down the cigarettes today and take part in the 48th annual Great American Smokeout. Emily Myatt, at the American Cancer Society, says it’s a push to get people to kick the habit.

State health officials say about 17-percent of Iowa adults smoke and 10% of high school students. Surveys also find about 5% of Iowa adults use e-cigarettes, while up to 22% of Iowa 11th graders vape.
