Big Tobacco wins big payback from New Mexico

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The state could face a multimillion-dollar penalty in funds supposed to help the most vulnerable New Mexicans because of a mistake made a decade ago.

Each year, states receive payment from big tobacco companies to help cover medical costs of treating patients suffering from smoking-related illnesses and to support various research programs. The money comes from the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) that resolved lawsuits against the companies.
