American Lung Assoc grades states on fighting evil tobacco

I saw an article in the local paper today about the American Lung Association's grades of how the state of Colorado was surpressing tobacco use. I was curious about how other states were graded and which states had the best and worst overall grades according to the Lung Assocation folks.

One state - Maine - got all A's. That fits with the recent news about Bangor banning smoking in your own car if a minor was present. Several tobacco growing states got all F's. I made the following map showing the overall total results (A=5pts, F=1pt, totalled across 4 grade categories.) Darker colors represent higher grades - more restrictions on where to smoke, more restrictions on youth access, more spending on prevention, and higher cigarette taxes.

Wow, AZ is way too dark! Probably because they just passed some stupid no smoking in public law state wide.

Tennesee baby!

Lotsa support going on here!

I'll probably be moving to Tejas though so time will tell how that goes.
