Help Us Tell the Story, Mississippi

Tobacco-related illnesses are expensive and harmful for all of us, remaining the #1 cause of preventable death here in Mississippi.
As such, we're working with the Invest in a Healthier Future coalition to save lives, improve the health of citizens and support the economy through an increase in the state cigarette tax by $1.50 per pack (up from 68 cents, one of the lowest in the nation).
