Funding to promote exaggerated secondhand smoke claims.....comes from a very dubious, self serving source

This self serving , dubious type of lobbying by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, an affiliate of the Johnson & Johnson / ALZA Company which manufactures or owns Nicoderm, NicodermCQ, Nicorette, Nicotrol, Commit, etc. is also known as rent seeking legislation.

Rent seeking refers to lobbying efforts by an entity to acquire a government mandate (use) of their products or services over a competitors, by using the force of government (smoking bans) to achieve that end.

In this case Nicoderm manufacturer J & J /ALZA use their private foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), to convince lawmakers (lobbying via non-profits) that tobacco use needs to be banned at private hospitality an effort to increase sales of their alternative nicotine products.

However, it is important to note that air quality testing of secondhand smoke proves the hazards are greatly exaggerated (SHS is actually up to 25,000 times safer than Occupational Safety regulations):
