Research has shown that raising taxes on deadly tobacco products decreases smoking rates. Besides providing a financial incentive to quit or never start, the tax increase would generate revenue that would be put towards cessation programs and health care for seniors, veterans and families.

As a doctor and mom who cares about the future of our state, the time to act is now. More than 1,600 Montanans die every year from tobacco-related disease. This costs Montanans more than $440 million every year.

I urge everyone to support Initiative 185. Taking action now will lead to a healthier future for us all.
