"Cigarette smoking accounts for about one in five deaths annually, or about 435,000 deaths each year. Each day more than 4,000 young Americans try a cigarette for the first time, and each day 1,000 become addicted to tobacco. One in every three of them will die prematurely. With this legislation, we will place sharp and sorely needed limits on access to tobacco products and on tobacco advertising and marketing."
