Cigarette Tax Increase Approved In High Country

ASPEN, Colo. (CBS4) – A massive tax on a pack of cigarettes in Aspen got the green light from voters.

The tax will start at $3 per pack and will increase 10 cents every year until it hits $4.

There will also be a 40% hike on all other tobacco products, including e-cigarettes.

The tax goes into effect January 1.

That’s the same day Aspen is raising the age to buy tobacco from 18 to 21.
