Tobacco Crops & Public Health - Kathleen Collomb, 10/25/00 07:45PM
From my experience as former manager of the Georgia Division of Public Health's tobacco use prevention program, I recommend assisting all tobacco farmers in re-directing their tobacco crops to other safer, more appropriate crops. Both the tobacco grown for cigarettes AND tobacco grown for spit tobacco and snuff should no longer be grown in this country. Economic incentives should be offered farmers - many of whom have families to support - to look to other crop alternatives. Thank you.
