Tobacco Corruption

Great insight from the good folks at Breathe North Dakota -
Big Tobacco means Big Money. Each year, the tobacco industry spends $8.5 billion marketing its products in the US. That’s over 23 million dollars a day or about one million dollars every hour!

In North Dakota alone, the tobacco industry spends 25.7 million dollars per year. The most vulnerable members of our society – children – are more susceptible to advertising as well. Studies have shown that kids are three times as sensitive to tobacco advertising as adults.
