1900 kids become daily smokers in VT each year. 1,900 kids.

by Allyson F. on Wednesday, May 8, 2013

It’s a scary number that leads to even scarier disease and death. But the good news is that we have a proven solution.  Kids are particular vulnerable to price increases.  By raising the state cigarette tax by just .80 cents we can prevent kids from a lifetime of addiction.  And the good news gets even better. If we use the money raised by the increase on proven public health measures like health care access, cessation, prevention and education programs we can save even more lives. It’s a simple and proven solution.   Click here to take action today! 

 Let us know what you think by replying to this blog? Is 80 cents worth it?
