Oregon Gets Fs In Getting People Off Cigarettes

Feb 6, 2019

Report cards are out for efforts to get people to stop smoking, and Oregon's includes a couple of Fs.  California got all As and Bs on the same report from the American Lung Association, "State of Tobacco Control 2019."

The Lung Association says Oregon should charge more in taxes for cigarettes and pay more for tobacco prevention programs.  Smoking is down in America, but annual deaths still top 480,000--about the population of Atlanta.
