The United States has announced its support for the first-ever international tobacco treaty, due to be adopted later this week at the World Health Organization's annual assemby in Geneva. The treaty calls for restrictions on advertising and marketing, new label controls and clampdowns on smuggling and secondhand smoke. The Washington Post's Mark Kaufman joins Neal Conan to discuss the treaty's authority.
