Tobacco Advertising

NPR's Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on a case before the Supreme Court. Tobacco companies are challenging a Massachusetts law that would limit outdoor advertising for their products. They say it's a violation of the right to commercial free speech; Massachusetts says its law is written carefully to prevent the companies from marketing to children.
