Few health risks have received as much attention in the pages of JAMA as tobacco. Since 1984, we have devoted 10 theme issues (most recently in 1996)1 to this health scourge and hundreds of additional pages in separate articles, news stories, and editorials. The science of nicotine addiction, the pharmacology of nicotine cessation, and the epidemiology of nicotine use have been addressed in our pages. The tobacco industry has been examined through keyholes2 and doorways.3 Through these and other articles, our goal has been to educate physicians, political leaders, and the world about tobacco use and its abuse.
