Welcome Back - 4 Posts Today

The holiday break was a busy time for tobacco control news. There are 4 posts today. I alert readers here so that they do not read the top story and fail to realize that there are 3 more blog posts. The 4 topics are:

1. A new study which concludes that the smoking ban in Pueblo, Colorado caused a 41% decline in heart attacks.

2. A new study which reports that "thirdhand" smoke is now a new health hazard to worry about.

3. A new book on the tobacco control movement which blasts the attorneys general and anti-smoking groups for their role in the public health disaster that is the Master Settlement Agreement.

4. The apparent 2009 theme of using cigarette tax increases to balance state budgets.
