I certainly wish FDA well with this; no honest person supports tobacco, alcohol, or adult-legal marijuana use by minors.

However, the only thing "unique" about this campaign is that FDA claims they have never done any other public education campaign to prevent and reduce youth tobacco use.

Of course they have and spent a fortune doing it, but in conjunction with other groups.

FDA is trying to sell this too hard. It smells of an attempt to justify another huge cash expenditure on a repacked version of messages which have already been used....and failed, if the numbers quoted in the article are correct.

It's for the cheeldrin. How dare you speak against saving even one child from the evil of tobacco.

Just another example of our government spending money we ain't got to influence people who are predisposed to agree anyway.

They just announced yesterday that in Ohio our smoking rate has dropped 5% since 1984. All the taxes, all the propaganda, all the preaching, bitching, nagging and denomalization and they can't even get 10% to adopt their views. Dang tobacco companies must be master marketers.

I am so sick of the Bullsh!t. Every one in the country knows they shouldn't smoke or at least knows the hazards of smoking. Does the FDA really believe they haven't preached enough? Or maybe they just haven't done it right yet. Whatever! Throw more money at it. Yeah, that'll work.
