Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I'm writing today to urge you to support raising the ME tobacco tax by $1.50. An overall increase in the cost of tobacco products is a win/win for Maine, saving lives and raising needed revenue for our state. By investing $15.9 million into tobacco prevention and cessation programs, we can revive our successful tobacco control program, prevent kids from starting to use tobacco, and help current smokers quit.

If we do nothing, 27,000 kids in Maine under the age of 18 alive today will ultimately die prematurely from smoking. As your constituent, I'm asking you to do something. Help save lives and the future of Maine.

Thank you!
