Anti Smoking Campaign
ClearWay Minnesota has launched a new public information campaign designed to inform Minnesotans that tobacco is still an urgent problem in our state.
The campaign includes a series of television commercials, online advertisements, bus sides, and billboards. Clearway Minnesota CEO David Willoughby says the tobacco industry spends about 150 million dollars a year on advertising in Minnesota
Willoughby says in Minnesota, about 650 thousand people still smoke and the state loses about 5100 lives each year due to tobacco use.
