Intro:

April 5, 1940

A survey completed in the 1940s by the Student Opinion Surveys of America showed that the smoking habits of college students provided tobacco companies with great business. According to this survey, more than half of the student body (58.7 percent) reported to be smokers, with less than a third identifying as smoking regularly. Women, however, reported to show little interest in the habit, with more than half of female students across the nation reporting they would never think about buying or smoking cigarettes (only 21.6 percent of female students declared to be habitual smokers). The most popular brand of cigarettes back in the 1940s was reported to be Lucky Strike, with 12.1 percent of students marking it as their favorite.

Intro:

The debate on whether to ban smoking continued tonight at the Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen meeting. Supporters of the ban got one step closer to reaching their dream of a butt free beach.

The board originally voted three to two against a smoking ban, but supporters have put up a fight and if all goes to plan they just might get their wish.

A group supporting the smoking ban presented the board with a stack of signed petitions. Only 211 signatures were needed for the petition to be successful, but the group gathered more than 240.

ONE of the world's biggest tobacco companies has told the High Court of Australia that it should be compensated for plain packaging laws if fewer Australians get sick or die from smoking cigarettes.

Japan Tobacco International, which owns the Camel and Benson & Hedges brands among others, also described the deadly harm caused by smoking as "alleged" in its written reply to government submissions in the High Court case.

The chief executive of the Cancer Council Victoria, Todd Harper, said tobacco companies trying to claim compensation in response to lives being saved showed the lengths to which they were willing to go.

"If we're going to be having a discussion about compensation we should be having a discussion about the million Australians who have died since 1950 … as a result of their smoking," he said.

LETTER: Smoking ban- Citizens voted, so get over it  

Jump to full article: Springfield (MO) News-Leader, 2012-04-13
Author: Written by Russ Tidlund Springfield

Intro:

after reading ... headlines regarding the smoking ban -- I was appalled. We put it to a vote once [and] the people of Springfield said they wanted a smoking ban. We got it. I approve of it; just as I approve of the E-Verify as well. The petitions were put out in both cases. We won in both cases.

To those who lost we did it the right way; now get over it and move on.
