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 ALL WENT DOWN A BUREAUCRATIC HOLE?
Apparently Connecticut was supposed to get 5 billion of that.
Where'd it go? Nobody knows.
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?
(I know it didn't go here. :-) I saw last years annual statement)
