Nevada Ranks 42nd in Funding Tobacco Prevention & Cessation

12 December, 2014

The Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids released a national report this week challenging states to step up their tobacco prevention and cessation funding to reduce tobacco use by youth. According to the report, Nevada ranks 42nd in funding programs, spending just $1 million per year on tobacco prevention and cessation programs which is just 3.3% of what the CDC recommends, and just 0.7% of the total revenue the state earns from the tobacco MSA funds and tobacco taxes.
