Clinton cites RJR marketing files

Published on .

President Clinton prodded Congress to act on legislation to curb tobacco marketing following release of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. documents. The documents discussed the need to attract customers in "the 14-24" age group. "The documents ... show more than ever why it is imperative to get tobacco companies out of the business of marketing cigarettes to children," the president said. Separately, the American Lung Association and other health groups petitioned the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to immediately begin regulating tobacco.
