A hard-hitting TV ad directing smokers to quit-smoking help begins airing in Minnesota this week. The graphic ad shows how smoking creates fat and cholesterol build-up in the arteries.
The ad debuts in advance of a significant increase in the price of cigarettes that takes effect on July 1. Minnesota smokers have access to free counseling and medications through QUITPLAN Services. More information can be found at 1-888-354-PLAN or www.quitplan.com.
