Ann Merlino , a retired College of Staten Island dean and chairwoman of the board of advisers of the Staten Island Region of the American Cancer Society , said she fully supported the Truth campaign , but said there should be a simultaneous effort to put pressure on tobacco companies and to educate youths by involving them in anti-smoking campaigns.

They think they're invulnerable , she said of youths.
The Truth campaign is sponsored by the American Legacy Foundation , a Washington D.C. organization that was created by the 1998 settlement between tobacco industries and 46 states.
The current campaign is called the Outbreak Tour and uses the idea of spreading the truth like a virus.The truck in South Beach was one of 13 that have been touring New York , Los Angeles , Chicago and Atlanta since June 5. The campaign is scheduled to come to a close on Sept. 1.
