Tobacco retailers that contract with Big Tobacco companies are required to post “corrective statements” between now and June 30, 2025. This is a long-awaited result of a 2006 federal court case ruling in which major tobacco companies were found guilty of racketeering for deliberately misleading the public about the health risks of smoking and secondhand smoke and the addictive nature of their products. The signs are intended to correct the record on the topics the tobacco industry lied about and to prevent future fraud by the tobacco industry.

Counter Tools mapped the retailers required to participate by zip code across the country and the relative density of retailers required to post corrective statements by state.  Check it out here.
