The Raise it for Health Coalition: United To Prevent Tobacco's Harm. For more information about the Raise it for Health Coalition and its efforts, please contact us at
Our Coalition supports raising the price of tobacco in order to reduce smoking, save lives and reduce health care costs. The higher the overall price, the more significant health gains achieved. That is why we support a significant increase in the tobacco tax.
The Coalition supports dedicating any additional revenue generated from a tax increase for health-related purposes.
We support increasing the price of all tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars and smokeless tobacco. Because all tobacco products cause serious health problems, all should be equally covered by the tobacco tax increase.
The Raise it for Health Coalition is a group of Minnesota's leading health and nonprofit
organizations that share a common goal of reducing tobacco use. Raise it for Health
supports significantly raising the price of tobacco products in Minnesota because
it is a proven way to prevent children from starting to use tobacco and helping existing
tobacco users quit.
