2004 BRFSS Survey Results: Davidson County

Tobacco Use Prevention

States add a special tax to cigarettes. The national average is $0.59. and the NC tax is 5 cents.
How much additional tax on a pack of cigarettes would you be willing to support if a considerable portion of the money raised was used to fund smoking pre vention programs for our youth and provide treatment options for tobacco users who want to quit?
