Professor: State Should Spend More on Anti-Smoking

Indiana University Health professor Jon Macy says Indiana is not spending enough money to keep teenagers from starting smoking and to help smokers quit the habit.

He told The Bloomington Herald-Times a recent report shows Indiana is turning a blind eye to what is an obvious problem in the state.

The repor says Indiana spends $5.8 million a year on tobacco prevention and cessation programs.

That's 7.3 percent of the $78.8 million recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
