New Report: Increasing Ohio's Tobacco Tax Would Fund Economic Stimulus Plan and Preserve Highly-Successful Tobacco Prevention Program
Date:4/23/2008

ool students and by 38 percent among high school students since 2000. Adult smoking in the state has declined as well, with 22.4 percent of Ohio adults reporting that they smoked in 2007, down from 26.3 percent in 2000.

Ohio this year will collect $1.34 billion in tobacco-related revenue from the tobacco settlement and tobacco taxes, but has allocated none of it to tobacco prevention and cessation programs. Ohio's current cigarette tax is $1.25 per pack, ranking it 21st in the nation. Ten states have cigarette taxes of $2 or more per pack, including Michigan.

Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death in Ohio, and the United States as a whole. Each year in Ohio, tobacco use claims 18,600 lives and costs the state $4.37 billion in health care bills, including $1.4 billion in Medicaid payments alone. Government expenditures related to tobacco amount to a hidden tax of $638 a year on every Ohio household. Tobacco companies spend $724 million a year marketing their deadly products in Ohio, amounting to 16 times what the state now spends on tobacco prevention.
