Did you know that only 12% of Californians actually smoke? So Prop 29 should be an easy win right? Sadly it hasn't been the case.

Big Tobacco just spent another $13 million for television ads through the end of April. They will begin spreading their lies, telling Californians that while a cure would be great, we cannot afford another tax.

The truth is, unless you smoke you will never feel the ramifications of the $1 tax.

The other truth is that even if you don't smoke, every Californian will be affected by the health costs smoking creates. Healthcare is one part of it. Second hand smoke is another.

Let's create a healthier state for our children. Let's leave behind a state that is better off for them to learn, survive and grow in.
