Two years ago, there appeared to be a spike in Maine's teen smoking numbers, and a lot of people were concerned. Now new numbers are out, and although better, it's clear that a lot of teenagers in Maine still smoke cigarettes. Why? And what needs to be done? We'll discuss this with Maine CDC Director Sheila Pinette and Ed Miller from the American Lung Association. And we'll meet Meg Weston, who just took over the reins at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport.
