Description

The Star-Tribune reports on the Minnesota Partnership for Action Against Tobacco, an organization created in 1998 to help smokers quit smoking. The investigation finds that the organization is spending most of its money on advocating smoking bans in bars and restaurants. A database created from court documents, which shows the connections between the organization and grant recipients, reveals heavy insider funding. MPAAT shifted course from the voluntary cessation oriented program even though its "own statewide survey (...) provided evidence that the smoking ban strategy would never work."
