ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – New Mexico isn’t where you need to be if you are trying to quit smoking.

According to a recent report by the American Lung Association, the state got an “F” for tobacco prevention.

The state reaps more than $130 million in tobacco-related revenue, but spends less $6 million dollars on tobacco prevention programs. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
