Virginia No. 32 in Anti-Smoking Spending for Minors

By CiglessBot

Richmond, Va. – A national study by an anti-smoking group says Virginia continues to lag behind in the amount of money spent on anti-smoking campaigns for minors.

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids reports that in the last fiscal year, Virginia spent $14.5 million on anti-smoking campaigns for youths.

That’s less than half of what it should be spending based on recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

VirginiaThe group said Wednesday that Virginia’s spending puts it at 32nd in the nation, down from a ranking of 24th last year.

The report said 19 percent of Virginia adults smoke, while 21 percent of the state’s teenagers smoke.
