This study identified adults'demographic and smoking behavior characteristics that are related to being asked to provide tobacco to a minor.
Telephone interviews were conducted with 6352 California adults.
Predictors included age, sex, household income, and smoking status.
Only 10.1% of California adults had been asked to provide tobacco to a minor in the previous year.
Fewer than 3% of individuals 55 years and older had been asked to provide tobacco, but among younger smokers 59.0% of 18-and 19-year-olds and 39.3% of 20-to 24-year-olds had been approached.
Interventions to reduce the social availability of tobacco are needed.
