A list of Periodicals which refuse tobacco ads
  • 01/05/10 Magazines That Do NOT Accept Tobacco Advertising* A more updated list, from Smokefree Maryland.
      Some of these publications do not accept cigarette or other product ads, but are accepting the Philip Morris "We Care" Ads, which are ostensibly tobacco ads. This is noted next to the title when applicable.

  • 00/05/24 MAGAZINE PROJECT
      A simple project by Med Chi, the Maryland State Medical Society in 1996: A resolution was adopted, and a letter sent to every managed care organization and hospital in the state - asking them to establish a policy against the display of magazines that contain tobacco ads. The letters in response (and a new policy by Prudential Healthcare) indicate this one-time effort was worthwhile and that follow-up efforts may yield a significant payoff. This could potentially echo the earlier development in which health care institutions stopped selling tobacco in their gift shops.

    UPDATES

  • As of the Sept., 1999 issue, PETERSEN'S HUNTING now takes tobacco ads--and lots of them: Basic, Marlboro, Merit, Copenhagen
    This is an abrupt departure from their previous no-tobacco ads policy.
