Alderman worried about consequences of outlawing ‘loosie' cigarette sales

CHICAGO (STMW) - Dr. Julie Morita spoke earlier this week on Good Day Chicago about the efforts to keep young African Americans from picking up smoking. It is something that's so hard to do when it's so easy to get a "loosie," an individual cigarette.

Alderman Jason Ervin of the 28th ward says there is a better answer to the problem than outlawing loosie sales. He joined us LIVE on GDC to talk more about his concerns.
