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.


September 2005 Website - A website with a unique approach that's fun for teens and adults.

Find out about all those great reasons to smoke. You can meet people. You can save money. You'll never have to lose. You could be saving the environment. Go to and find out what kids in Nova Scotia, Canada say about tobacco and tobacco companies.

This is a wonderful teen website with good information and graphics. But what makes it really stand out are the videos. In the "Great Reasons to Smoke" TV ads, the characters poke fun at the excuses smokers give for their habit. There is also a feature in which kids can present their own "Great Reasons" and win an ipod. There are even ads from around the world that teens can vote on.
