Hike tobacco tax for a healthier Ohio – 21 de Febrero de 2015 – EEUU
Now is the time for action and taking meaningful steps toward reducing the health impact and financial burden of tobacco in Ohio.

It is an indisputable fact that tobacco use is linked to an increased rate of serious medical conditions including cancer, heart disease, pulmonary dysfunction and low infant birth weights.

There is also no question that health-care expenses and lost productivity related to smoking cost Ohio billions of dollars annually.

Tobacco use is a global problem, but it is one that disproportionally affects Ohioans.

In Ohio, 23.4 percent of adults smoke, compared with the national average of 17.8 percent.

In addition, every year, an estimated 12,500 Ohio children under the age of 18 become daily smokers.
