Ohio to renew its war on tobacco

COLUMBUS — Six years after lawmakers angrily dismantled Ohio’s anti-smoking foundation after it tried to block government’s confiscation of its funds, the state wants to renew its war on tobacco.

“Ohio once was a national leader in smoking-cessation efforts, and we need to take up that cause once again,” Gov. John Kasich said during his State of the State address Monday.

He announced the investment of $26.9 million in tobacco settlement dollars over five years for smoking prevention, cessation, and enforcement programs.
