Need a sign to quit smoking? Here it is

Signs are now in stores across the country with a message highlighting the health effects and addictiveness of smoking.

They’re up in stores that sell cigarettes because of a federal court order that went into effect Oct. 1.

They will be up until July 2025.

The hope is that the signs will give people the extra nudge to quit.
