The American Lung Association in Ohio recognizes that these bold goals will only be met in Ohio if these following three actions are taken by our elected officials;

  1. Raise the cigarette tax by $1 per pack to reduce smoking rates, especially among youth;
  2. Match the tax on non-cigarette forms of tobacco to the cigarette tax to reduce the number of people using these products and prevent cigarette smokers from switching instead of quitting; and
  3. Use 12 cents of the $1 cigarette tax increase to fund comprehensive, science-based tobacco prevention and cessation programs proven to help smokers quit and help our youth to never start smoking.
