Reps. Waxman, Dingell, Pallone, and DeGette, and Sens. Harkin, Rockefeller, Durbin, and Blumenthal released a new report that found that hundreds of tobacco advertisements and images glorifying smoking and e-cigarettes appear in magazines with large teen readerships.

The report finds that “tobacco companies continue to glamorize smoking in advertisements in magazines with large youth readership” and that “magazines frequently contain alluring images of smokers in their editorial content.”

The report identified hundreds of advertisements, photos, and other images – many featuring alluring images of celebrities – glamorizing smoking and e-cigarette use.  These advertisements and images appeared most frequently in Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, US Weekly, People, and Time.

The Bicameral Task Force is a group of Senate and House members committed to developing effective policy responses to the urgent threat of climate change.
