Legacy for Health
Legacy was established in 1999 as part of the Master Settlement Agreement between the major tobacco companies, 46 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. The states requested that a portion of the money they received from the tobacco industry be used to establish and fund an organization (Legacy) primarily dedicated to studying and providing public education about the impact of tobacco in order to reduce its use and associated death and disease.
