Tobacco Use Prevention

A state-level lawsuit against tobacco companies was settled in 1998. Since that time, tobacco
companies are required to pay millions of dollars annually to the state of North Carolina.
Do you favor or oppose using some of those settlement dollars for programs
to reduce tobacco use?
