Throughout the 20th century, candy cigarettes, cigars, and chewing tobacco products were sold in stores across the nation in packs identical to the real ones, and children were even pictured in cigarette advertisements in magazines for Philip Morris (“Gee, Mommy, you sure enjoy your Marlboro!” in the 1940s and 1950s) and Liggett & Myers’s L & M in the 1960s (in a series of images of family milestones such as a boy being fitted for his first suit, as his proud father looks on while puffing on his cigarette [“When a cigarette means a lot…”]). (See the Center’s exhibition, “Kids, Candy, n’ Cigarettes”.) Beginning in the 1950s, children were exposed to cigarette commercials day and night on TV. After Congress banned such commercials effective January 1, 1971, tobacco advertisers circumvented the ban by sponsoring sporting events in stadiums, arenas, and racetracks with prominent cigarette billboards that could be seen on TV. Auto racing also featured cigarette brand logos on racecars and on drivers’ uniforms and helmets. By the 1980s, video games popular among teenagers such as Pole Position and Super Monaco GP featured the same cigarette brand logos as in the real races.
