We did it!
With the help and support of advocates like you, we took on Big Tobacco this November at the ballot box and WON! This Tuesday, voters in Eagle County, Summit County, Pitkin County, Glenwood Springs, New Castle, Crested Butte, and Vail made their voices heard and passed ballot initiatives which will raise the tax on tobacco and nicotine products, including e-cigarettes. And with over 33% of Colorado school children reporting using tobacco or nicotine products - 27% saying they used e-cigarettes - this victory could not come soon enough.
But we're not done yet. The fight against Big Tobacco isn't over and we're going to need your help, and the help of advocates like you, to finish the job and make sure our kids are safe from the deadly effects of tobacco and nicotine. Can we count on you? Forward this blog post to your friends on social media or send them THIS LINK to sign them up for our You're the Cure Network: https://act.yourethecure.org/ZgLmNB1
Together, we will be a relentless force for building longer, healthier lives in Colorado!
