Wayne Hogan and Students of St. Johns County Working Against Tobacco

Wayne Hogan, of Jacksonville consumer attorneys, Terrell • Hogan, talks with Dave Garison, regional tobacco prevention coordinator for Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT), at the organization’s booth at the St. Johns County Fair.  Hogan, one of 11 trial attorneys involved in Florida’s landmark suit that produced a $17 billion settlement against the cigarette industry, sponsored the booth on behalf of the SWAT program to raise awareness among local teens and get them involved in spreading the anti-smoking word to their peers. Florida’s government receives about $400 million each year through the settlement, but legislative funding for teen tobacco prevention programs has been slashed from the original $70 million per year allotment to $1 million a year.
