From the Shawnee News-Star:

Dr. Joel Nitzkin, a physician and a former Louisiana State Health Director, is scheduled to make a presentation as part of the hearing.

“Tobacco control policy has gone largely unchanged during the last 30 years. Significant data is pointing toward the promise of these products to help reduce the rate of smoking,” Nitzkin said. “It really becomes a question of ethics, whether public health officials across the county acknowledge this data in their efforts to achieve a meaningful reduction in smoking rates.”
