State Agency Advertising on ‘Net?

Why is a State agency spending our money to advertise on the internet?

I was reading an article in the Texas Tribune, on the latest iteration of the “Golden Rule” (“He who has the gold, makes the rule.”), the imposition of forced tobacco free campuses by the Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas.

While considering the excessive force and high-handedness of the move by CPRIT to use State tax funds to coerce beneficiaries of State tax funds to police the use of a legal substance – tobacco – vs. the fact that this may be the one action by the Institute that prevents the most cancer, I noticed a couple of ads on the page, bearing the seal of the State of Texas.

Sure enough, when I clicked on one, it led me to the Office of Public Insurance Counsel.

Does the State need to be spending our money this way?
