Long Island Press Investigates Big Tobacco's Lobby to Kill Indian Cigarette Trade
Date:3/17/2010

Long Island Press Publisher Jed Morey penned an investigative piece this week on the Native American cigarette trade in the United States. The story details the behind-the-scenes efforts of “Big Tobacco” to push a bill through Congress that halts the practice of sending cigarettes through the mail.

(PRWEB) March 17, 2010 -- On March 11, the Senate unanimously approved S.1147—known as the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act—which prevents tobacco retailers from sending cigarettes through the US Postal Service. Proponents of PACT have been marketing the bill as an anti-smuggling and anti-terrorism act, but the Press investigation details an ongoing assault on Indian reservation smoke shops by Big Tobacco and the US government.

“What most people see as an attack on the cigarette trade is actually sponsored by the tobacco companies,” says Morey. “No one denies that cigarettes are an unfortunate part of our society, but by passing this bill the US government is knowingly aiding Big Tobacco in maintaining dominant market share.”

The Long Island Press is an alternative newsweekly based in Syosset, NY. Since it was established in 2003 it has won more than 150 local and national awards.
