A new study shows that despite a rise in cigarette sales in Colorado, fewer people actually smoked in 2005 than in 2001. The study by the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center found that one in six adults smoked in 2005. In 2001, it was one in every five. The study found that women account for much of the decline. Carsten Baumann, evaluation director with the State Tobacco Education and Prevention Partnership, talks to Ryan Warner.
