Healthy Montana is a statewide initiative to raise state fees on all tobacco products including currently untaxed e-cigarettes and other electronic smoking devices. This effort will save both lives and money by preventing kids from smoking and reducing the toll of cancer and heart disease on our health and our economy.
This initiative will prevent nearly 100,000 Montanans from losing their health coverage. It also provides needed funds for veterans suicide prevention programs, health services to help seniors and people with disabilities stay in their homes, and programs to prevent kids from smoking and help smokers quit.
If you have a story you would like to share related to tobacco use or what having access to care means for you and your loved ones we would love to hear it! We know there are thousands of stories related to these two issue in Montana and need to hear from you!
