The ALA recognizes the state for increasing its tobacco control funding, but overall we're still failing. We also got Fs for our cigarette tax and cessation coverage by Medicare. But we received a B for our smoking bans.

That works out to a 0.75 GPA. I don't think we could even get into MDC with that. Which is fine, since smoking in public schools is banned.
