The Center for Disease Control gave Indiana a big, fat F for its anti-smoking efforts, but so did almost every other state.  In fact, Indiana came in about the middle of the pack (27th) for its anti-smoking spending in 2017, about $7 million in sponsored cessation programs and ad campaigns.The CDC recommended Indiana spend almost $73 million: a sound investment, considering we spent almost $3 billion treating smoking-related illnesses, and with one of the highest smoking rates in the country (almost 21%).
