UN Health Group Plotting Massive Global Tax on Tobacco, Without U.S. Input
The World Health Organization will meet behind closed doors in Russia later this month to vote on a proposal that would encourage most of world’s countries to impose a huge tax on tobacco, one that would double or even triple the price of cigarettes and threaten real injury to U.S. tobacco growers in Kentucky and North Carolina.
The move will be made without any U.S. government observers, as they are expected to boycott the meeting in protest of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, according close observers of the process. And the proposal is expected to pass without any public record of how each country voted.
