Increase Michigan’s Tobacco Taxes

  • Michigan over the past decade has seen a steady decline in the use of tobacco but that decline is starting to plateau. Michigan’s prevention programs continue to see a lack of support to create effective change in Michigan in our tobacco use rates and our cancer screening rates. By increasing the tax on other tobacco products to create tax parity with cigarettes we know that can curb the use of tobacco for youth interested in trying tobacco. Our goal is to use funding from this tobacco tax to increase our prevention efforts in tobacco use and cancer.
