The U.S. Surgeon General is set to release March 8 a report that criticizes states that have slashed funding for anti-tobacco programs, according to Terry Pechacek, director for science at the CDC's Office on Smoking and Health. "It is a hard-hitting report and it's going to say, 'Why haven't we ended this epidemic? Why are we still feeding all these replacement smokers into a deadly industry?'" Pechacek said.
