"The CDC's campaign is a smart investment that will save lives and save money by reducing tobacco-related health care costs, which total $96 billion a year in the United States," Myers said.

"Tobacco companies spend $8.5 billion a year -- nearly $1 million every hour -- to market their deadly and addictive products, often in ways that entice kids," he said. "The CDC's campaign tells the harsh truth about how devastating and un
