{January 20, 2010}   Raise Tobacco Tax in Minnesota

Raise Tobacco Tax in Minnesota to save lives.  The best way to reduce youth smoking is to raise the price of tobacco products.  It will prevent tens of thousands of Minnesota’s kids from becoming addicted to cigarettes and other tobacco products.

Do something about it before their are too many products that are appealing to kids.  Tobacco products know come in flavors like peach, chocolate, grape, strawberry and watermelon.  Big tobacco companies are targeting our kids, and we need to do something about these e-cigarerettes.  Minors can buy these candy-cigarette products in the mall and convenience stories because they are not regulated.

Let’s make tobbacco use a public health priority in Minnesota.  It is the leading cause of preventable deaths and disease in Minnesota.   The tobacco industry spends millions on advertising their products in Minnesota, and we need to do something about it.
