Counter Tobacco Podcast Episode 35: Tobacco Company Corrective Statements at the Point of Sale

Cigarettes, Health Warnings, Media Campaign, Podcast

In this episode, we’re talking about the corrective statement signs that tobacco companies are currently being required to post at the point of sale. These signs are part of the results of a court case decision from 2006 that convicted major tobacco companies of racketeering – for a decades-long conspiracy to deliberately mislead the public about the health risks of smoking and secondhand smoke and about the addictiveness of their deadly products. We’ll cover some background on what led to this requirement, what the requirements really are, and how tobacco prevention and control advocates can use this as an opportunity to work toward change. Listen below or on Apple PodcastsSpotifyiHeartRadio, or LibSyn.
