The Lung Association gave the U.S. Food and Drug Administration a B for its regulation of tobacco products, and the federal government a D for $1.01 tax rate on a pack of 20 cigarettes. The federal government received a C for cessation coverage. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires the majority of private health plans to provide tobacco-cessation treatments.
However, Medicaid, a health care program for low-income people, provides only limited coverage. Dr. Irwin Berlin, chairman of the American Lung Association in New York’s board,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych],[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], said there are too many barriers to treatment in the state. “We need better coverage for cessation so everyone can access it,2011 USA version marlboro cigarettes with stamps,” he said. Berlin, chief of the Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine Division at Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens, said he’s witnessed the “grim reality that tobacco use inflicts on patients.”
The state’s Medicaid program provides coverage for medications to help smokers quit,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but it covers individual counseling for limited categories of recipients and there are annual limits on quit attempts. More coverage is provided for state employees. There is no mandate for private insurers to cover medications and counseling.
The Larkspur City Council on Wednesday worked on changes to its smoking ordinance, which would bar smoking in condominium and apartment buildings — except in designated areas — and declare lighting up a public nuisance, Mayor Larry Chu said. The proposed changes will likely come back to the council for a vote in February. “I don’t look at the grade and say ‘Oh,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych],[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], well, Larkspur has to improve it,’” Chu said. “I’m looking at it and saying, ‘Do we have adequate protections from second-hand and tertiary smoke?’
It’s a health and safety issue. If what we’ve done gets us an ‘A’ grade, well then, great.” Fairfax and San Anselmo earned “D” grades, while Ross, San Rafael and the county received “C” grades. Supervisor Charles McGlashan said other issues have pushed smoking laws to the back burner. “We are so busy with the bag ordinance, Marin Clean Energy and other things we don’t have the bandwidth to deal with it right now,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych],” he said. “But it is on our list.”
Novato was at the top of the class with a “B.” Player’s and the Forsythe Team teamed up in Championship Auto Racing Teams (commonly known as CART which later became Champ Car) the mid-1990s, but the partnership ended in October 2003,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], when the Tobacco Act’s ban on cigarette sponsorships came into effect following a seven-year exemption.
The legislation almost caused the cancellation of the 2004 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal due to the heavy involvement of the cigarette industry in F1 at the time. The race was reinstated after a deal saw the race organizers pay $29-million to the then-five tobacco sponsored teams for the loss of revenue due to the ban on cigarette sponsorship and advertising in Montreal.
