Letter: Increase the ND tobacco tax

Email

My family and I have been really happy with North Dakota’s smoke-free indoor workplace law that passed in 2012. As a mother of young children, I feel very fortunate that kids today will have decreased exposure to secondhand smoke.

As my kids get older, I worry about their exposure to advertising for tobacco products. I find it appalling that tobacco companies target their advertising to kids, including enticing flavored tobacco products and colorful packaging.
