Support increasing the price per pack on cigarettes by $1.00 or more

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I urge you to support increasing the price per pack on cigarettes by $1.00 or more.

Currently, a pack of cigarettes is more affordable than a ticket to the movies, dinner for two, or an album on iTunes.






I'm not the only one who claims that increasing the price on cigarettes will make them less accessible to our kids.

"The tobacco industry even acknowledges that if prices were 10% higher, incidence smoking rates for 12-17-year-olds would be 11.9% lower." (Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids December 2018 fact sheet titled Raising Cigarette taxes reduces smoking, especially among kids and the cigarette companies know it)

I appreciate you taking time to listen to my concerns and hope you will support increasing the cigarette tax by at least $1.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
