Posted: Updated:

The Washington State Secretary of Health was in Finley to speak with more than 200 middle school students about tobacco use. The new campaign titled "no stank you" provides the negative health and social effects of smoking.

State Secretary of Health, Mary Selecky says, one of the things that they are learning is that the message about smoking is getting through but not the message about chew, so they are paying more attention to that and she says kids like gross and funny , that's what they say.

Gross and funny meaning the tactics used in there advertisements.

The new anti-tobacco ads have already hit the air waves statewide as well as throughout the country
