WASHINGTONNo Bull, no more. Decades of tobacco
advertising on outdoor billboards have come to an end. On April 22,
under the agreement reached last year between the tobacco industry
and 46 states, four large tobacco companies removed tobacco
advertising from more than 3,000 billboards nationwide.
In many instances, the tobacco promotionals were replaced by
anti-tobacco ads, which will remain until the companies leases
on the billboards expire, most of them in January 2000.
