Big Tobacco's Latest Dirty Trick: Deceiving Oregon Voters
Date:10/8/2007

nies are well aware that voters strongly support cigarette tax increases, especially when used to fund important programs like children's health care. So they've concluded that their only chance to defeat this initiative is to spend vast sums to carry out political dirty tricks and deceive voters. Each company has spent about $3.3 million so far against the initiative, according to media reports.

Opposition by Big Tobacco is one of the best arguments why Oregon voters should support Measure 50. Voters should reject the tobacco industry's lies and support Measure 50 for the very same reason Big Tobacco opposes it: It will prevent kids from smoking and help smokers quit, thereby saving many lives.

These Oregon activities continue the tobacco industry's long history of political dirty tricks. Last year, tobacco companies spent more than $80 million to oppose state ballot initiatives to increase tobacco taxes and require smoke-free workplaces and public places. In Arizona and Ohio, R.J. Reynolds tried unsuccessfully to defeat smoke-free ballot measures by sponsoring alternate initiatives that would have allowed smoking to continue in many workplaces, but had misleading names like the Arizona Non-Smoker Protection Act and Smoke Less Ohio.
