The Genesee-Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse displayed 70 T-shirts and signs warning about the dangers of tobacco and smoking on March 20, when the agency joined in a “Kick Butts” day.

The 70 T-shirts represent the 70 people who die each day in New York from smoking-related illnesses. The display was at GCASA’s new office at 249 East Ave., Albion. The agency also is working with Lyndonville students on a video about the dangers of tobacco and some of the marketing strategies used by cigarette companies to entice smokers. That video will be posted on the agency’s Web site when it’s ready.
