The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation confirms that smoking bans are a great source of profit for pharmaceutical nicotine interests and quitlines

The Johnson & Johnson Company affiliate RWJF has provided funding to the American Legacy Foundation in an effort to ensure its products are promoted and sold through smoking cessation organizations. (J & J is the manufacturer of Nicoderm, Nicoderm CQ, Nicotrol, Nicorette, Commit and other smoking cessation products)

This recent RWJF grant says it all:

For a time, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation tried to keep a low profile regarding their role and purpose for funding smoking ban efforts. With the grant information above, RWJF seems to be making a bold new statement......they no longer are hiding their method or motive for funding smoking's all about the profit for them and their parent company Johnson & Johnson. (RWJF owns 80,000,000 shares of J & J stock, a $5.4 billion holding)
