Ohio Ranked Poorly For Child Smoking Prevention

Dec 13, 2013

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids says Ohio is fourth worst in the nation in spending on smoking prevention efforts.

The anti-smoking group says the state will spend a million-and-a-half-dollars in Fiscal Year 2014 on efforts targeting children. The group says more than half of the 50 states spend less than ten-percent of national tobacco settlement money and tobacco tax revenue on those efforts.
