Tobacco Prevention Money Isn't Meant to Pay Down the State Deficit!

Right now, governors across the U.S. are trying to pay down the state deficit by using funds specifically raised for tobacco prevention. This questionable practice not only threatens our children but the integrity of our state governments.

Urge your governor to use tobacco money as it was meant to be used - to protect our children from tobacco addiction.

Smoking prevention programs save money and lives! The state of California saved $100 million in health care costs within seven years of starting tobacco prevention programs, $11 million of which were saved in the first two years of the programs! Let's successfully save money and the lives of our kids in our state!

Please use tobacco money as it was meant to be used - to protect our children from tobacco addiction.
