A recent study shows tobaccos sales to teens down drastically from 1997.
12-years ago, tobacco sales to minors reached as high as 40%.
That was down to 16% by 2002, and it's now just below 10%.
It all comes after regulations requiring states to implement laws and programs limiting tobacco use among kids and teenagers.
Experts say those tighter regulations have helped.
They're urging lawmakers not to ease up out of fear it could allow more sales to minors.
