Please act on e-cigarettes
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent and as an advocate for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), I urge you protect Wisconsin kids from the dangers of tobacco products by taxing e-cigarettes. We have one of the strongest cigarette taxes in the country -- $2.52 per pack. Yet, e-cigarettes, are not currently taxed in Wisconsin. Not one cent. This only enables the epidemic among our youth.In Wisconsin, one in nine middle school students and one in four high school students self-identify as using e-cigarettes. These products are designed to attract kids with delivery devises disguised to look like USB drives, pens, etc. No matter how it is delivered, nicotine is addictive, which is why it is even more concerning that one Juul pod contains more nicotine than 20 cigarettes.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
