Tobacco taxes save lives

Tobacco excise taxes are proven to save lives by reducing the use of tobacco among current users and preventing many youth from using it all together. These taxes also raise much needed revenue for our state.

This will help cut health care costs by decreasing the amount of tobacco-related medical expenses.
