In 1998, the major American tobacco manufacturers allocated $246 BILLION over the first 25 years to 46 states in order to educate children on the dangers of smoking and help prevent the ravages of smoking in the future. In 2013, only two states had any funding left.

Where did all that money go?

It's maddening there is no accounting of who it was paid to and where it went.

Who would know if they ever paid it?
