CTpK Indistinguishable from satire.

But this is a serious corporate lobbying organization, symptomatic of the US healthcare system. It doesn't come anywhere close to Big Oil or BigT they're projecting to topple. And despite their absurdly high funding from tobacco reparations, they're downright ineffectual. In their pledge to fight tobacco use, they resorted to swaths of half-truths (intentional), thereby abdicating all credibility. (TI acts as front).

Which has prolonged (unintenionally) the demise of overall prevalence, or regulatory activity; but still brought it down to one of the lowliest levels worldwide. Which is why you might charitably say: their strategy worked out apt in US context / on American teenagers. And would make a rational explanation for their science-proofed fretting over e-cigarettes - which, quick reminder: accelerated smoking decline. But from their assumed tunnel view, might well threaten all scare-based accomplishments.

We don't live in a disjoint world however. And their activities had repercussions (=EC) on the smoking prevalence elsewhere (EVALI). And neither the most charitable interpretation allows ignoring their poisoning of public, scientific and regulatory discourse. Particular during a pandemic and trust in public health at an all-time low. (Doesn't occur in a void.)
