CIGARETTE TAX: Is now the time to quit?

Posted: Updated:

On Monday, July 1, Minnesota's per-pack tax on cigarettes will go up by $1.60. That's going to take a toll on any smoker's wallet – and many are starting to think now might be the time to quit.

Mike Sheldon with Clearway Minnesota talked to FOX 9 News about what the tax means for Minnesota smokers, and he addresses trends from around the country after smokers were forced to grapple with similar price bumps.

Sheldon says Clearway Minnesota recognizes these price bumps as vehicles that get current users to quit and also prevent youth from taking up the habit.
