  • 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...

  • 10.09.2012 Free Patches For Smokers

    Quitting smoking cigarettes just got a little easier. For a limited time, the California Smokers' Helpline is sending callers from Nevada County free nicotine patches. Eligible cigarettes store users who call 1-800-NO-BUTTS and enroll in the free telephone-based cessation program will receive a free two-week starter kit of patches, while supplies last.The patches are an FDA-approved treatment proven to help smokers kick the habit. They release nicotine into the bloodstream through the skin, reducing withdrawal symptoms and slowly weaning smokers off nicotine. Nevada County was one of 34...

    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...

Smoking Proposal Would Be Hard For Districts To Enforce

With one unanimous vote, smoke cigarettes on school campuses could come to an end in Ohio.

The Ohio Board of Education voted unanimously this month to recommend school campuses -- including parking lots and athletic facilities -- be tobacco free.

School districts have the option to adopt or reject the recommendation that covers all forms of tobacco.

State law already prohibits smoking cigarettes inside school buildings, but the surrounding campuses are not automatically smoke-free areas.

At least half of the school campuses in Crawford County are smoke cigarettes free.

For the other schools, the proposal is a tricky one.

"It is going to be difficult to enforce," new Bucyrus Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. "We hire auxiliary police staff to monitor some of our more major events, so part of their job will have to be this, along with crowd control. Most of those people walk outside the building and they can't go out there all the time."

Wynford Superintendent Steve Mohr agrees.

"We have it in place now, but we don't enforce it as strictly as we should," Mohr said. "We really need to be more vigilant about it."

As for his staff, Mohr said non-smoking cigarettes rules are strictly enforced.

"The issue is mostly athletic events," Mohr said. "We have never had an issue with a teacher. We are going to have to be more proactive than reactive. We will have to hang more signs and make more announcements."

But signs and announcements may not be enough on larger campuses, that include all property owned by the district, including parking lots.

"I think this is a great step forward," Galion Superintendent Kathy Jenney said. "We are smoke cigarettes free, but this adds the next phase. A lot of people are using smokeless products. Those are harder to detect, but they do just as much damage.

"(At games) it can be harder to police. We try with signage, and when we go out and talk to people they are usually pretty good about it. We updated in 2008 and included all outside areas in the policy."

But what happens if someone gets caught using a tobacco product where it is not allowed?

"There aren't any penalties I know of," Kimmel said.

"You walk outside between basketball games, or at half time, and people are around the corner smoking cigarettes," Kimmel said. "When you ask them to stop, normally they do. At some of our minor events, though, we are going to have to ask whatever athletic administrator we have to monitor it. But it is going to be hard to enforce."

Districts allow teachers to leave the school campus to smoke.

"All of our staff, by union contract, are entitled to duty-free times when they can leave the grounds. If (smoking cigarettes) is what they need to spend their time doing, they can do that," Jenney said. "I am old enough to remember smoking cigarettes lounges in the schools."
