Military tobacco - a follow up to our investigation

Last month on Marketplace, I published a report from my year-long investigation about how Army, Air Force and Coast Guard bases in more than a dozen states sold tobacco at illegally low prices, even as the Department of Defense (DoD) spends more than $1.5 billion a year on tobacco related costs.

While reporting this story, one of the big questions nagging at me was this: If a base did adjust its prices for tobacco, raising them to legal levels, how much would be saved on health care costs? Read the full story here.
