Please support a tax on e-cigarettes!
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent, I am writing to urge you to take action to protect kids from all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes. The Surgeon General reports e-cigarette use among youth and young adults has become a public health concern.
Right here in New York, one in five high schoolers uses e-cigarettes. To stop this alarming trend, please support taxing all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, at the same rate as combustible cigarettes. The use of e-cigarettes among New York high school students doubled from 2014 to 2016. This isn't surprising given these products are cheap and enticing to kids. E-cigarette use is strongly associated with the use of other tobacco products among youth and young adults, including combustible tobacco products.
Please protect our kids from a future deadly addiction by ensuring all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, are taxed in the same manner as cigarettes.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
