Proposition 86

Woowoo! Driving in to the office today, my carpool mate and I heard the California Report discussing the tobacco tax that will be on this November's ballot. David Veneziano, American Cancer Society CEO, was interviewed for the story.

The tax on a pack of cigs will be raised, which does two things:

1) people quit
2) taxes go towards spectacular things like: universal health care for children! tobacco prevention programs! staffing and reopening emergency rooms!

Link to the story to come.


Update: the report was actually on NPR's Morning Edition.
