Outdoor Advertising and the Goverment

Most industries work hand-in-hand with the government for mutual growth ie. business growth = economy growth etc. This synergy however, is not applicable to cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, guns and things that will essentially kill a person.

So how does the outdoor advertising industry fall into this group of outcasts?
Pardon the the slight tone of resentment here. I am caught up in some bureaucracy recently, hence the lack of updates. Do stay tuned however, I just came back from a quick trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. ;)
