The State of Missouri is receiving low marks when it comes to anti-smoking efforts. A report by the campaign for tobacco free kids indicates the state’s budget includes about $70,000 dollars for programs to help people quit smoking or discourage them from starting. Only the state of New Jersey ranks worse than Missouri. State lawmakers had included an additional $150,000 for anti-tobacco efforts but it was vetoed by Governor Nixon along with other proposed spending increases. The report also shows that 22 percent of adults and 15 percent of high school students in Missouri smoke.
