Abstract:     
This article investigates why some US states spend so comparatively little on Tobacco Control Funding (TCF). We find that cross-state variation in spending on tobacco control is significantly driven by a tobacco special interest effect.

Keywords: tobacco control funding, tobacco production, political economy, special interest
