TRU Campaign/Tobacco Opinion

States add a special tax to the purchase of cigarettes. The national average tax is $1.18 per
pack and North Carolina's tax is $0.35 cents per pack.
Would you favor or oppose raising North Carolina's cigarette tax to $1.18 for people who smoke:

If part of the tax revenue was used was used to expand health insurance coverage for the uninsured in North Carolina?
