Several health organizations in Kansas are supporting Governor Brownback’s call for a major increase in the state’s cigarette tax, from 79 cents a pack to $2.29. The governor wants to use that to close the budget gap, and the health groups hope that’ll be an incentive to get people to stop smoking. Opponents of the plan argue it’ll cause people to stock up on smokes elsewhere.
