"On This Day in American History"

I remember this....It took a while but I quit smoking about 15 years ago..
On April 1, 1970, President Richard Nixon signs a bill prohibiting cigarette ads on radio and television. Cigarette smoking had been linked to health problems since 1939, and by 1950, all states prohibited selling cigarettes to minors. In 1964, the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission concluded that advertisers had a responsibility to warn the public about the negative impacts of smoking. In 1969, Congress passed a law requiring tobacco companies to put warning labels on cigarettes. The last televised cigarette ad ran at 11:50 p.m. during The Johnny Carson Show on January 1, 1971.
