Join The Campaign For A Healthy Colorado!
This November, we can stop tobacco companies from getting more children and adults addicted to cigarettes for the rest of their lives. Tobacco companies want to sell more cigarettes even though they know it causes cancer and heart disease and kills nearly half a million people every year. Colorado kids smoke 7 million packs of cigarettes a year. Increasing the cigarette tax is a proven way to fight this deadly problem and keep kids from starting to smoke. Vote Yes on Amendment 71!
