Proposition 56: Increases the Cigarette Tax to $2.00 per pack (YES)

Explanation: Proposition 56  would increase the cigarette tax to $2.00 per pack, with equivalent increases on other tobacco products and electronic cigarettes.

BWW Analysis: This sales tax does two things, one, hopefully have folks think twice about buying a pack of cigarettes. Two, uses the funds from this cigarette tax to help fund physician training, Medi-Cal, as well as other educational and tobacco-use prevention programs.
