A c1 3 day kentucky room will we continuing our conversation about teens using e-cigarette with only out from the foundation for a healthy kentucky before we went to brea i was talking about.
Why did we have a big fight when it comes to taxes on cigarettes and especially his your body was saying yes she did awesome for that they got $.50 of act and i was explaining in the break that in a study we had this epidemic as well and a packet of cigarettes was similar to the six dollars repacked them all brought that same albro cigarette now i now 30 goal is a pack that's true across the united states.
Yes, that increased her cigarette ataxic vacantly reduced new york is four dollars and 35 expert just have been this techie that i five dollars total for the grade including the dollars and i taken this is something i also wanted to bring up.
I don't want this conversation to be skewed in a way where on take dimwitte tobacco dimwitted cigarettes yo know you would like to to feel that because the unix spoke up, but his a thing.
I also know that we have a tobacco industry here.
You put up a very interesting fact how much are they making about three cents per pack for the tobacco that they growing up cigarettes is what is what tobacco grower get so it's not a huge amount.
However, it is still culture in kentucky in dillon business in kentucky yet but we are most concerned about is the kids i most likely you start young it's the flavors and the fleet cool factor that drives them in a bubblegum cotton candy.
Speaking of cool that is what david's undoing now this is a cigarette is well and you know i when i opened it actually goes me like an apple product.
You have an iphone or some all but really it is just another is that this isn't the same as the one you have.
It's a knockoff okay so it looks like it got a card.
Similarly, i later what looks charger right here the charger for the you you you be and then this is the cartridge of some flavor labor and is not battery pack so that your actual device and then comparing it though is you were talking about you was apparent you see this this is an actual usb so this verse is the jewel that of people using pretty secret which i've seen so much of this in like insta graham yeah college kid at this is a huge like i mean the it.
It's so cool that how they were initially marketed on social media.
Social media yet what it's really doing basically killing our kids is taking for years and years and decades we've had the declining use among both adults and teens backup okay just last year, we have a race nearly 3 decades progress in teasing nontobacco you i taken like you are one of the bigger i get it i get the incentive increasing the tax on the actual the rentable one of tax the big g you guys out of the e-cigarette, so there was a team per tasking rooted in the tell last year that included th fifth that backup at lobbyist came in over the weekend and monday morning it was gone not included now right now e- cigarette are taxed differently than cigarettes.
The subject about a ate white and health e- cigarette the sales tax are treated differently moving my 18 over okay by.
You gave for 17- year-old asked an 18-year-old guy him or her.
