Financial ties between the anti-smoking activists and pharmaceutical nicotine interests

Since readers continue to ask, "……is there, per chance, any kind of relationship between, let's see, ACS, ALA, AHA, ANR and Glaxo Smith Kline.... or Johnson & Johnson Co. for instances?"

I have detailed and provided links in the past to show there IS a financial relationship between anti-smoking activists and pharmaceutical nicotine is the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF).

$99 mil from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association:

$1.5 mil from RWJF to American Non-Smoker’s Rights:

Manufacturer of Nicoderm & Nicoderm CQ is ALZA: (check the box, manufactured by ALZA, distributed by GSK)

ALZA is owned by Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical company: (ALZA / Johnson & Johnson removed their website, backup is from previous ALZA website)

RWJF owns 80 million plus shares of J & J:

And by the way the financial interests of the pharmaceutical nicotine companies even extends to medical "studies" to influence lawmakers to take a pro-smoking ban stance.

So readers can stop asking: Is there a connection between these radical anti-tobacco groups and pharmaceutical nicotine (Nicoderm) companies?...The answer is a RESOUNDING YES!
