Florida State Tobacco Tax Increase May Prompt Smokers to Quit Spontaneously
Date:7/1/2009

PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Florida state tobacco tax will increase by $1.00, the biggest of its kind in Florida history, to a total of $1.34 per pack, as part of the Protecting Florida's Health Act.
