The Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) is an agreement reached in November 1998 between the Attorneys General of 46 states, 5 U.S. territories, the District of Columbia and the four largest tobacco companies in America on the advertising, marketing and advertising of cigarettes. In addition to requiring the tobacco industry to pay billions of dollars a year to housing countries forever, the MSA has also imposed restrictions on the sale and marketing of cigarettes by participating cigarette manufacturers. Some pre-MSA strategies, such as brand sponsorships, have been severely limited or eliminated by the agreement. 37-44 Even with MSA restrictions, youth exposure to cigarette advertising in magazines is still a topic.42 In 2009, the Family Smoking Preking preking and Tovention Control gave the FDA Act ACT the power to regulate tobacco products. Attorneys general have actively contributed to the FDA`s shaping of its regulatory authority. Tobacco control includes measures to prevent and reduce tobacco use, such as tobacco-free air legislation, access to tobacco assistance, tobacco taxes, efforts to raise the minimum age of sale of tobacco products to 21, and much more. These are proven strategies that not only save lives, but also reduce tobacco diseases and ultimately save the health costs of the federal states and our federal government. Another study of six countries concluded that “the absence of strong interest groups in public health, an unreliable public constituency for tobacco control, and inconsistent support from the National Executive and legislative nades, all of which are linked to large budget deficits,” have led to a reduction in health spending with MSA33 funds. that little public funding from the AMS has been allocated to tobacco control and tobacco prevention in ethnic minorities. 34 On the other hand, sometimes the resources of the WMA have prevented even greater reductions in some health and tobacco control programmes.

35 The history of anti-smoking in the United States and efforts to limit the sale and use of cigarettes, particularly minors, began in the 1950s with the first epidemiological research linking smoking to lung cancer.1 The Surgeon General`s report received considerable attention. Cigarette consumption has declined slowly in the United States. This growing concern also led to some important political developments, including the 1966 request to alert every pack of cigarettes and the ban on advertising of cigarettes on radio and television in 1971. The MSA provides for a massive financial transfer of cigarette manufacturers to the United States for the cost of treating smoking-related diseases and funding for educational programs to reduce underage smoking (see Table 1 for The Diet`s Strengths). In addition to WMA funds, four states, 4 The MSA has also established a national non-profit foundation (the American Legacy Foundation) to support research into effective tobacco programs ($250 million over 10 years) and fund an anti-smoking campaign for a total of $1.45 billion over five years. , a National Tobacco Grower Settlement Trust would provide $5.15 billion over a 12-year period to compensate tobacco quota holders and farmers for expected financial losses due to an expected decline in MSA cigarette consumption.
