Inside the 'Be Marlboro' parties Philip Morris throws for teenagers - but doesn't want you to know about
Smoking is deadly, but Philip Morris International and its brand, Marlboro, still want to push tobacco products onto trendy and attractive teenagers around the world.
Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids
The company does so by throwing "Be Marlboro" parties in over 60 countries to promote the brand using sex, fun, and risk taking, a spokesperson for the nonprofit Tobacco-Free Kids tells us.
The parties are not held in the United States.
You can sign a petition to stop Marlboro, and these parties, here.
