TOBACCO COMPANIES DON'T CARE ABOUT OUR CHILDREN. THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THEIR PROFITS.
Prop 28 would repeal Prop 10. The tobacco companies are sponsoring, supporting and paying for Prop 28 for one reason and one reason only--to protect their profits.
Once again, the tobacco industry is trying to mislead the public. They lied when they said that smoking isn't harmful. Now they're lying about Prop 10.
The facts about Prop 10:
Prop 10 hasn't wasted money. In fact, Prop 10 has already generated more than $600 million for healthcare and education for children and families in every California county.
Prop 10 is funding a $7 million anti-smoking campaign. That's the real reason the tobacco interests want to kill Prop 10. The facts about Prop 28:
ON MARCH 7TH, SAY NO TO TOBACCO. VOTE NO ON PROP 28.
- Prop 28 would slash $680 million a year in vital programs for children and families, including healthcare and immunizations, preschool education, and efforts to help children from families with drug and alcohol problems.
- Prop 28 would cut funding for anti-smoking efforts that will help prevent smoking by pregnant women and help avoid thousands of premature births per year.
- Prop 28 is strongly opposed by leading health, education and community groups, including the AARP; the American Cancer Society California Division; the California School Boards Association; and the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids.JACQUELINE ANTEE
