Vote Yes on Prop 29!
Do you want to help save lives? Do you support innovative cancer
research and tobacco prevention in California?
If so, then ANR encourages you to vote YES on Prop 29.
Proposition 29, the
California Cancer Research Act, will be on the June 5th ballot. This initiative will raise the
tax on tobacco products by $1. It will provide approximately $441 million per
year towards research to find cures for cancers and other tobacco-attributed
diseases, as well as about $147 million per year toward California’s innovative
tobacco prevention and cessation programs that help keep our kids from starting
to smoke and support everyone’s right to breathe smokefree air.The
tobacco industry is spending millions to fight Prop 29.
Because a higher tobacco tax encourages people to quit smoking and prevents
kids from starting to smoke, so it stands to lose a lot of money if California
voters approve the initiative on June 5th.
believe the tobacco industry’s campaign of lies and deception! You’ve probably already seen and
heard the deceptive tv and radio ads in opposition to the initiative. The
Tobacco Industry—convicted under federal racketeering laws of decades of
conspiracy to deceive the public—is up to its same old tricks. We cannot let the industry defeat Prop 29.
There are too many lives at stake!
