New Report: Increasing Oregon's Cigarette Tax Will Reduce Smoking, Save Lives and Save Money
Date:10/16/2007

hat increasing the price of cigarettes is one of the most effective ways to reduce smoking, especially among children and pregnant women. Studies show that every 10 percent increase in the price of cigarettes reduces youth smoking by about 6.5 percent and overall cigarette consumption by about 4 percent. In recent years, every state that has significantly increased its cigarette tax has enjoyed significant increases in revenue even while reducing smoking.

Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States. In Oregon, tobacco use claims 5,000 lives each year and costs the state more than 1.1 billion annually in health care bills, including $287 million in Medicaid payments alone. Government expenditures related to tobacco amount to a hidden tax of $587 every year on every Oregon household. While Oregon has made progress in reducing youth smoking, 17 percent of Oregon high school students are still current smokers, and 5,300 more kids become smokers every year.
