Tobacco harm reduction: A (state) capital idea
Now, lawmakers in a growing number of states are exploring how vastly safer tobacco products can help their smoking constituents lead longer and healthier lives. In 2012, I was invited to participate in legislative committee meetings or hearings in Kansas (April), Indiana (September) and Oklahoma (October). This year, legislators in Iowa, North Dakota (February), Kansas and Idaho (March) have heard the truth about tobacco harm reduction.
While I was in Bismarck, N.D., I was interviewed by Dale Wetzel, former Associated Press writer, on his radio show, The Legislature Today. Dale asked challenging questions that generated a lively discussion. The interview is available here.
