A new website, http://www.transformtobacco.com/ continues to provide updated information on proposed cigarette tax increases and the impact that such higher taxes will have on retailers. In addition, an interactive state map provides information for each state on proposed cigarette and other tobacco product tax increases, illicit trade of cigarettes, smoking restrictions, bans on vapor (electronic cigarette products), tobacco harm reduction and prevention of tobacco sales to underage youth. By clicking on a particular state on the map, the visitor is provided with background on pending legislation, facts on the dollar amount of cigarette taxes being collected by that state and a link to send an e-mail message directly to the visitor’s own state representative and state senator.

A good source to be able to voice your opinion and take action against new taxes or smoking bans.
