State Senator Pam Jochum (D) has introduced a bill that would tax roll your own cigarettes at the same rate as store bought cigarettes. However, Jeffrey Burd, an Ohio attorney representing a company with RYO, "They don’t want to level the playing field, they want to demolish the playing field," he told the newspaper. Burd contended that people who roll their own cigarettes pay tobacco tax at a rate of 50% of the wholesale price of the tobacco and the idea that a loophole exists in Iowa’s law "is a myth."

Mr. Burd is closer to the truth, they want all tobacco banned everywhere, it is their goal to end smoking globally by 2020.
