Oregon Ballot measure 108 wants to tax ejuice at 65% https://ift.tt/32od1en

https://ballotpedia.org/Oregon_Measure_108,_Tobacco_and_E-Cigarette_Tax_Increase_for_Health_Programs_Measure_(2020))

Just saw an ad for this presented as "vote yes to this to end teen smoking"

  • cigarette tax at 16.65 cents per cigarette, which is an increase from $1.33 to $3.33 per 20-pack of cigarettes;
  • e-cigarettes and other nicotine inhalants at a rate of 65% of the wholesale sales price#); and
  • cigar tax cap of 65 percent of the wholesale sales price, not to exceed $1.00 per cigar, which is an increase from $0.50.

And for people who like blunts:

  • Measure 108 would also define "little cigars" as "cigarettes" and make it illegal to sell cigarettes in packages of less than the traditional amount of 20 cigarettes.

I dont mind a steeper tax hike on tobacco in general but I feel like a lot of people are going to stick with tobacco if a bottle of juice is going to be too much and of course the cigar smoking lawmakers set a cap for their goods. If you're buying cigars you can drop an extra couple dollars but us working class folk have to stretch our ejuice!
