What States Preparing for Opioid Lawsuit Funds Can Learn from Tobacco Settlements?

Public health professionals frequently mention the 1998 tobacco settlement as an example of a lost opportunity to ensure that the settlement funds were used for public health purposes including tobacco use prevention and cessation programs.
