Support Legislation That Increases The Price On Tobacco Products

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I strongly encourage you to support passing a tax package that significantly increase the price on tobacco products.

There are several positive outcomes that would occur by increasing the price on cigarettes by $1.50 per pack. These would include 5,000 lives saved, 10,400 adult smokers who would quit, and $387.17 million in long-term health care cost savings from adult & youth smoking declines.



Saving lives, reducing tobacco use, and generating much needed revenue for our state are positive outcomes that can occur by passing a tax package that significantly increases the price on tobacco products.

I thank you for taking time to read my comments on this important issue.

Sincerely,
