Minnesota Health Department exposed for taking funds from pharmaceutical nicotine interestsClearing the Air readers know of the link between RWJF and the manufacturer of Nicoderm, the Johnson & Johnson Company. So when it is exposed that our "impartial" State Health Department receives funds from pharmaceutical nicotine interests while promoting a ban on tobacco nicotine use........the appearance of impropriety and conflict of interest is clear.
Clearing the Air will closely follow the situation to see if an investigation is forthcoming.
(RWJF financial grant to Minnesota Department of Health is backed up on C.T.R. servers just in case RWJF somehow "misplaces" their link.)
Below are $2,000,000.00+ in grants from the pharmaceutical nicotine foundation RWJF to Minnesota government agencies.
