Every 30 seconds another person becomes a victim. 12 is the average age of victims, but that number continues to go down. When homeless youth/runaways turn to the streets, one out of three is lured into commercial sexual exploitation within the first 48 hours. There are nearly 200,000 homeless children in Louisiana. You don’t have to be a math whiz to realize Human Trafficking is a problem we can’t afford to ignore.

In 1992, Congress passed the SYNAR Amendment to the Alcohol, Drug Abuse and Mental Health Administration, Reorganization Act. The SYNAR Amendment, named after its congressional sponsor Mike Synar, requires States to develop laws reducing the sale and distribution of tobacco products to individuals under the age of 18. The law was based upon research evidence that nearly 90% of adult smokers began smoking before the age of 18 and that they regularly purchased their own cigarettes from stores and vending machines.
