ASPEN, Colo. (CBS4) – The city is considering a nearly $4 tax on a pack of cigarettes.

A ballot question for voters in November is being drafted.

If passed, it would also put a new 40 percent tax on chewing tobacco.

Aspen already passed an ordinance raising the age to buy tobacco products and e-cigarettes from 18 to 21-years-of-age.

That takes effect in 2018.
