Quick Update

Here are a few updates from this week:

SB 298, the bill to eliminate ITPC, was not voted out of committee last week, which means for now it is dead. Though because it was voted out of the Senate it can be brought back up in conference committee, so please continue to educate others on the importance of keeping a state agency only dedicated to tobacco control.

This week's IBJ has an interesting article on the impact of the tobacco industry's sponsorship on the racing industry, check it out here.

Also Phillip Morris is planning on launching their Snus tobacco product nationwide, which means we must have liked them because they were test marketed here, and that is not a good thing.

And in yesterdays Indy Star there was a story on more senior citizens smoking pot... which is very bizarre.

That's all for now.
