Fred Flintstone, role model for today's youth, smokes cigarettes with neighbor Barney. No wonder many young kids are trying to be cool like Fred, and lighting up a butt.

Twenty-three percent of high school students in the United States are current cigarette smokers—23% of females and 22.9% of males. Eight percent of middle school students in this country are current cigarette smokers, with estimates slightly higher for females (9%) than males (8%). At fifty bucks a carton, this is even more stupid than it sounds.
