The letter that Dan Glickman failed to answer last Thursday. To: Motion Picture Association of America From: Thirty-one state Attorneys General Date: May 1, 2007 “Each time a member of the industry releases another movie that depicts smoking, it does so with the full knowledge of the harm it will bring to children who watch it... “Eliminate the depiction of tobacco smoking from films accessible to children and youth... “There is simply no justification for further delay.” On May 1, the Attorneys General asked the U.S. film industry to make real changes. Not PR gestures. America is still waiting for an answer. Jay E. Berkelhamer, MD, FAAP President American Academy of Pediatrics Cass Wheeler CEO American Heart Association Cheryl Healton, Dr.P.H.
