New American Lung Association Report Reveals States Failing to Enact Lifesaving Tobacco Control Policies
Date:4/22/2009

g/smokefree.

Only three states and the District of Columbia passed increases in their tobacco taxes in 2008, bringing the average state cigarette tax up to $1.19 a pack. This is a dramatic increase from the beginning of 2002 when the average tax was only 44.6 cents per pack. The revenue from tobacco taxes sometimes funds state tobacco control programs. However, no state has met the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's recommended funding level for these vital public health programs in fiscal year 2009.

"Higher cigarette prices help prevent children from starting to smoke and motivate adults to quit," explained Nolan. "The revenue increased tobacco taxes generate can and should be used to fund state tobacco control programs in order to save even more lives from the death and disease caused by tobacco use."

SLATI 2008 complements an American Lung Association report released in January 2009, the State of Tobacco Control 2008 report, which grades state tobacco control laws. For more information and to view that report, visit: www.stateoftobaccocontrol.org.
