Save 27,000 young people from a lifetime of addiction to tobacco.

Increasing the tobacco tax by just $1.00 would save more than 27,000 young people from a lifetime of addiction to tobacco.

The tobacco industry targets young people in Massachusetts.

The tobacco industry is selling products in colorful and fun packaging that attracts young people. These youth-focused tobacco products are available to young people at a variety of locations, from gas stations to pharmacies.

The industry prices these products cheaply to make them affordable to young people.

When the price of tobacco products goes up, fewer kids use them. And fewer kids get hooked.

Price matters. Repeated cigarette tax increases have driven cigarette smoking down among youth. In contrast, other tobacco products have not seen a tax increase since 2002.

Increasing the tobacco tax by just $1.00 will save more than 27,000 young people from a lifetime of addiction to tobacco.
