WHAT'S GOING ON?
The U.S. House Ways & Means Committee is considering taxation on nicotine and tobacco as part of the funding bill for President Biden's "BUILD BACK BETTER" plan. The provision is designed to equalize taxation across all tobacco and nicotine products.
In simple terms, this means that the proposed tax levied on far less harmful products would be the exact same as the tax levies on deadly combustible cigarettes - sending, once again, the absolute WRONG message to current smokers, as well as creating new barriers to entry.
We must unite and fight!
