"The anti-smoking project trained local advocacy groups to lobby for passage of higher cigarette excise taxes and to promote regulations for smoke-free environments. The program also mounted a public relations effort to counter an estimated $47 billion spent by industry to market tobacco products during the study period and included efforts to limit underage access to tobacco."
What's this! The government can now give money to advocacy groups to lobby for passage of taxes and regulations (laws). What kind of BS is this. They will be doing it for guns next!
