BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana University professor says Indiana is not spending enough to try to keep teenagers from start smoking and to help smokers quit the habit.
Jon Macy is an assistant professor in the Department of Applied Health Science in the School of Public Health-Bloomington at Indiana University. He told The Herald-Times a recent report shows Indiana is turning "a blind eye to what is an obvious problem in this state."
The report assesses whether states have kept their promise to use a significant portion of their settlement funds to fight tobacco use. Indiana spends $5.8 million a year on tobacco prevention and cessation programs, which is 7.3 percent of the $78.8 million recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
