Digging up an old post from December 2005 I found a conversation I had with a RWJF executive whose identity I kept secret..........this time however, I will name that individual.....it was Richard Toth. To understand their thinking and motives behind funding smoking bans I now republish that post from a telephone conversation a year ago:

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation......the ends justifies the means
I had a conversation today with someone from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (no lie) who confided to me that even they did not believe secondhand smoke was harmful........however, if claiming that it was harmful led to smoking bans, the Foundation was satisfied that those bans would eventually lead to people quitting smoking (and people quitting would increase sales of pharmaceutical nicotine products for their parent company J & J). Therefore the hospitality industry and you as a vendor, Marcus Aurelius, are the expendable pawns in our agenda. (paraphrased) (cell phone records confirm this conversation took place)
So in their mind the ends justifies the means............. I wonder if my creditors are ok with that explanation? Original post can be found here.
These arrogant, selfish, greedy, lying activists need to be and will be exposed for what they are......if I have anything to say about it........and I do.
