The built project was funded by the California’s Tobacco Tax Fund (Proposition 99) from 1999-2007, and in that time, developed numerous resources about cessation and prevention of tobacco use by construction and blue collar workers.  Many of these materials are still available in hard copy through the Tobacco Education Clearinghouse of California (TECC):  (search for “union”).

We are pleased to have received funding from Pfizer to update the website and select materials.  Please contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Remember when..., has cigarette ads from the 40's and 50's. Some of them are entertaining and many just plain disgusting.

What if tobacco companies really practiced "truth in advertising?" To find out, make a visit to This fun site shows what can be done with a little imagination. Bonnie Vierthaler, founder of the Badvertising Institute, doctors up actual tobacco ads and forces them to tell the truth about the product. She will even teach you how to "badvertise". This is a wonderful site full of projects, and fun things to do, but also serious about its' anti-tobacco message.
