Reinstate funding for tobacco control in New Jersey

Dear [Decision Maker],

I urge you to support S862 which would dedicate 1% of tobacco tax revenues to the tobacco control program.

The use of tobacco products remains the nation's number one cause of preventable death. In New Jersey, tobacco use causes an estimated 11,800 deaths per year.

In New Jersey, smoking is estimated to cost $4.06 billion in direct health care costs, including $1.17 billion in Medicaid costs.

Tobacco sales are up in New Jersey for the first time in five years! That means more people are smoking, and more people are at risk of tobacco related death and disease.



I urge you to support S862.

Sincerely,
