ClearWay MinnesotaSM, in partnership with tpt, produced a 60-minute documentary about the impact tobacco has on real Minnesotans – moms, dads, daughters, brothers, aunts, grandparents, friends, coworkers – and how the industry has successfully attracted people to its products for over a century. Premiering on Minnesota public television stations on October 31, Tobacco Addiction: The Unfiltered Truth puts a face on tobacco use by following the journeys of four Minnesota tobacco users – from their first cigarette, to attempts to quit, to health consequences they now face.
Featuring insights from tobacco users, former smokers and the medical and public health communities, the documentary is an unprecedented look into the human, health and economic impact of tobacco addiction. The candid conversations in Tobacco Addiction: The Unfiltered Truth inspire us and give us hope that, together, we can improve the health of our communities.
