Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent and a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I'm writing today to ask you to support HF 3032, a bill to end the sale of all flavored tobacco products in Minnesota, including menthol cigarettes.



Minnesota should end the sale of all flavored tobacco products. Fruit, candy, and menthol tobacco products lure kids into addiction, making it easier to start and harder to quit. 80% of kids who have ever used tobacco start with a flavored product.

The tobacco industry has spent decades manipulating its menthol brand-specific product line to appeal to kids, communities of color, and the LBGTQ communities. Tobacco use is the number one cause of cancer and preventable deaths in Minnesota.

Tobacco costs our state too much, both in lives and money. Tobacco costs our state more than $3 billion in excess medial costs and more than 6,000 lives. It would be a mistake to continue to allow flavored tobacco products to be sold in Minnesota.

You can improve the health of Minnesotans and the financial health of our state by voting yes on HF 3032 when this bill is heard on Wednesday in the House Commerce Committee.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
