Health groups seek investigation of cigarette ad campaign

05/30/2013 // West Palm Beach , Florida, US // JusticeNewsFlash // Justice News Flash // (press release)

U.S. – Health organizations are seeking an investigation into a new Camel cigarette ad campaign. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the groups, including the American Lung Association and the American Heart Association, purport that magazine advertisements for the Camel Crush may be in violation of the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement, which prohibits cigarette makers from marketing their products to kids.

The ads in questions have been featured in 24 magazines that have young people as a target audience.

The advertising of tobacco has been banned from radio, television, and on billboards; however, print advertising of tobacco is still legal in the United States.

The Camel brand is owned by the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company.
