Texas collects millions of dollars from tobacco taxes every year and speaks with tobacco companies which informed Texans about the cigarettes harms foe decades. The money are planed to be spent on anti-tobacco companies. Texas are allocating les then half of anti-tobacco revenue and spending.

“We are faced with tobacco industry that is lead to maintain its market for kids and current smokers. State and federal policymakers must battle a changing of Big Tobacco and step up for programs founding and reduced tobacco use.”

Aspects of public life feel obvious to many people who follow politics. To me, it feels crystal clear why tobacco revenue should be spent on anti-tobacco campaigns. But to convince others to agree with you, it’s important to explain why something seems obvious.

Tobacco lead to health concerns like heart attacks , emphysema, cancer and so one that cost the country and state billions of dollars every year. Tobacco deaths and illnesses cost the USA $170 billion every year. The Texas Medical Association said that every year the smokers loose their productivity and premature deaths cost them more than $20 billion. All these means that retail prices for a cigarette pack is $6.
Surely, anti-tobacco campaigns would save our money from the state as they have been proven to reduce smoking rate. Anti-tobacco use is also a good life issue. In Texas, more then 25,000 deaths are linked to tobacco. To promote the wellbeing and health of Texans, Texans should spend tax on tobacco and revenue settlement on anti-smoking campaigns.
