Decline in Cigarette Sales Offset by Use of Alternative Products

e policy decisions meant to curb smoking," the researchers wrote.

"Tobacco kills, no matter if it's in a cigarette, a cigar, a snuff can, or a roll-your-own. Lower federal and state taxes on these non-cigarette products is keeping tobacco addiction 'affordable' and encouraging preventable disease and death. All forms of tobacco should be taxed equally, and state campaigns to curb tobacco use should address this loophole for death," study leader Professor Greg Connolly, director of the Tobacco Research Program at the Harvard School of Public Health, said in a prepared statement.

Each year in the United States, about 438,000 people die of smoking-related illnesses. About 25.9 million men (23.9 percent) and 20.7 million women (18.1 percent) in the United States are smokers, according to the American Heart Association.
