Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

This study examined adolescent smokers provision of tobacco to other adolescents.

METHODS:

Data from a survey of 8th-, 9th-, and 10th-grade students in Minnesota were analyzed by using mixed-model logistic regression.

RESULTS:

More than two thirds (68.8%) of adolescent smokers had provided tobacco to another adolescent in the previous 30 days. Mother's smoking, number of friends who smoke, owning tobacco merchandise, number of cigarettes smoked in the past week, source of last cigarette (commercial), and recent attempt to buy cigarettes were associated with providing.

CONCLUSIONS:

The social availability of tobacco to youth needs further examination.
