Investing in Tobacco-Free Youth is a coalition supported by a diverse group of organizations spearheading a campaign to reduce the burden of tobacco use in Ohio. The campaign’s goals include:

  • Increasing the cigarette tax by $1.00 per pack.
  • Matching the Other Tobacco Products (OTP) tax to the cigarette tax.
  • Investing 12 cents of the $1.00 cigarette tax in tobacco use prevention and cessation programs. This investment will allow the state to revive its successful comprehensive program.

The result will be fewer children starting to smoke, more adults quitting, and increased revenue for the state. It is a win-win-win for Ohio.
