This deadly trend is anything but new. Over the last hundred years, the tobacco industry has exerted a growing influence in the United States. Peddling an addictive product, tobacco companies have amassed hundreds of billions of dollars in profits at the expense of public health, lost lives, broken families and untold sorrow.
