(Washington, DC)  —  Nevada ranks low when it comes to keeping kids from smoking and helping current smokers quit.

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids says Nevada ranks 44th overall in funding anti-smoking programs.

The Silver State spends about $150,000 a year on prevention and treatment efforts.

Nearly one out of five Nevada high school students smoke, and about 3300 people die from smoking-related causes each year.
