The 8th National Summit on Smokeless & Spit Tobacco presents: “Of Surgeons General and Cowboys: Driving Progress through Plateaus and Snake pits”

This theme refers to the 30th anniversary of the first Surgeon General’s report on smokeless tobacco, which was released in 1986, and gives a nod to the continued presence of smokeless tobacco in the Southwest.  For the past several years, smokeless tobacco use among youth, and particularly boys, has remained stagnant, so we’re looking for new strategies to get down from that plateau and get around the “snake pits” we’ve encountered along the way, such as the industry’s introduction of new products.
