Strong Opposition to HB2083/SB2843!

Aloha Chair  [Decision Maker],

I am writing to express my strong opposition to HB2083/SB2843, which if passed, would treat large cigars differently than other tobacco products by capping the tax to $.50. Large cigars may contain more than a half an ounce of tobacco - as much tobacco as a whole pack of cigarettes.

Cigars are just as dangerous as any other form of tobacco, and contain the same cancer-causing substances as cigarettes and other tobacco products. Giving tobacco companies a tax cap on large cigars means that their bottom line profits are more important than the health of Hawaii residents.

I urge you to hold this bill in committee.
