The 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) between the major cigarette manufacturers and 46 states, D.C., and five territories remains the largest legal settlement ever executed in the United States. This panel discussion will flag several takeaways from the MSA that might be of benefit in framing any future national settlement with parties such as JUUL Labs.  Panelists will provide a brief background of the MSA, highlight both its positive outcomes and missed opportunities, and discuss implications for future national settlements with tobacco manufacturers.
