  • 18.10.2012 New Jersey Considers New Taxes On Non-cigarette Tobacco Products

    Little cigars, which are taking increasing space on area tobacco-shop shelves, are shaped and smoked just like cigarettes. But because New Jersey taxes them differently, they cost nearly one-third the price.Over the past several years, increased state and federal taxes have helped turn some smokers on to less-taxed cigarettes store products, local shop owners and anti-smoking cigarettes groups say.New Jersey has a $2.70 tax per cigarette pack, and the federal government has a $1.01 excise tax it enacted two years ago.That sixth-highest cigarette tax in the country may entice more smokers to...

Films Subsidized By State Promote Smoking

California taxpayers subsidize major motion pictures that depict smoking cigarettes, which promotes the unhealthy habit and undermines efforts to keep young people from lighting up, according to UCSF researchers.

In a report published Tuesday in PLoS Medicine, the researchers say the state and other governments may be violating their own health policies and goals when they subsidize or offer tax credits to makers of movies that directly or indirectly promote smoking cigarettes.

"We have a situation where governments today are now spending taxpayer money to sell discount cigarette online to kids," said study co-author Stanton Glantz, a UCSF professor of medicine and director of the Smoke Free Movies Project, which is based at the university.

UCSF released the information at the same time California is considering extending the film subsides that began in 2009. AB1069, which would authorize $500 million in subsidies for another five years, is scheduled to be heard Thursday in the state Senate Appropriations Committee.

"U.S. movies with smoking cigarettes are toxic to kids. They are a major - if not the leading - factor in kids now being recruited to smoke," said Jonathan Polansky, a UCSF consultant and co-author of the article.

About 70 percent of all PG-13 movies subsidized under California's program depict smoking cigarettes, the researchers found. UCSF officials also cited previous studies from other researchers that estimate exposure to onscreen smoking cigarettes accounts for 44 percent of all adolescent smokers.

The California Film Commission, which administers the state's Film and Television Tax Credit Program, said the 2009 law requires the group to base eligibility for the credit on the production type, not the content, said Amy Lemisch, the commission's director.

A report by the Los Angeles Economic Development Corp. found California's Film and Television Tax Credit generated $3.8 billion in economic activity, more than 20,000 jobs and more than $200 million in additional tax revenue in its first two years.

UCSF researchers said no taxpayer money should be used to subsidize films that feature smoking cigarettes.

Any changes to AB1069 would have to be proposed by lawmakers. Ben Golombek, spokesman for Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, D-Sylmar (Los Angeles County), who wrote the bill, said his office received a letter last week from the American Heart Association concerned about the issue and no amendments to the bill have been proposed.

"It's very, very late in legislative progress to be raising an issue like this," Golombek said.
