"Deadly Alliance" Tobacco Report Released

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Counter Tobacco, and the American Heart Association today released Deadly Alliance: How Big Tobacco and Convenience Stores Partner to Market Tobacco Products and Fight Life-Saving Policies. This report details the concentration of tobacco marketing at the point-of-sale and its impact on tobacco use, especially among kids. It also shows how tobacco companies enlist convenience stores and other tobacco retailers in opposing policy changes, such as tobacco taxes and point-of-sale remedies (e.g., warning labels, restrictions on placement, flavors, and discounts, etc.). If you are working on funding for tobacco prevention, tobacco taxes, or point-of-sale issues, these groups recommend this report.
