Read article - Quotes Kristin Knutzen, Geisel '17, research project coordinator at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, about a study she coauthored that found that 40 to 50 percent of the top hip-hop videos from 2013 to 2017 contained depictions of tobacco or marijuana smoking or vaping. "These depictions may affect fans' attitudes toward smoking and increase the likelihood of smoking," says Knutzen. The article also cites comments by Samir Soneji, associate professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, who was the study's coauthor.
