Grow Food, Not Tobacco
World No Tobacco Day presents an opportunity to raise attention about the many devastating harms caused by tobacco growing. Farmers should not be incentivized to grow tobacco over food. Help raise awareness by downloading and sharing an infographic considering how many pounds of rice could be bought for the average price of a pack of cigarettes in ten countries. Post the infographic to social media, accompanied by the following caption:
