  1. The use of cigarette taxes in New York City and other locations
  2. The social implications of cigarette taxes
  3. The revenue for the taxing authority

With a country that is plagued with many preventable illnesses and people that are leading seemingly unhealthier lifestyles by the day, it is no surprise that cigarettes contribute much of the nation's ills. Due to the damage caused by tobacco use; especially cigarettes, such as the increased risk for cancer, heart disease, air pollution and second-hand smoke, as well as being expensive for public health services, NYC is joining many other cities and states around the country to tax cigarettes and tobacco products. The intention is to curb the amount of smoking, raise the age of people starting to smoke, and discourage young adults and teens from starting. The added economic benefits of taxing this vice is that it increases revenue for the city and state and can offset the effects of smokers on the health care system and other issues that arise from the use of tobacco products.
