$1 cigarette tax hike

Maryland Citizens' Health Initiative is proposing another dollar-per-pack increase to the state's current $2 dollar cigarette tax. The cigarette tax has been raised three times in the last 15 years and has coincided with a 32% drop in cigarette smoking during that time, which is double the national average.
