Although states spent more on tobacco-control programs in 2013, only Alaska and North Dakota were able to match the levels of funding recommended by the CDC, according to an American Lung Association report released Wednesday. The report found 40 states and the District of Columbia did not fund their tobacco prevention programs at even 50% of the CDC recommended level. Tobacco companies are working around current anti-smoking measures by promoting other tobacco products and electronic cigarettes, the group said.
