Students are hoping to spread the message that smoking in movies is neither cool nor glamorous.Monday, an anti-smoking poster created by Buena Park High School student Brianda Arredondo was unveiled, and more posters will spread the message on bus shelters. The next set of posters will be unveiled in Santa Ana on Tuesday and Fullerton on Wednesday.

The posters were commissioned by the Orange County Health Care Agency's Tobacco Use Prevention Program.

Research studies found that children 10 to 14 year old who watched the highest amounts of smoking in movies were nearly three times as likely as other children to begin smoking.
