Tobacco use will kill 1 billion people this century -- unless we act now. Tobacco companies must be held accountable for their marketing practices and deception. To pass strong tobacco control laws, we need grassroots support -- we can't do this without you!

Thank Gov. Brownback for Taking Action to Create a Healthier Kansas
Governor Brownback has proposed a $1.50 cigarette tax increase in his budget. An increase in the cigarette tax not only provides needed revenue for the state, it is a proven way to save lives.
If approved, this would save 14,900 Kansans from premature death due to smoking and prevent more than 25,000 kids from starting to smoke.
Send a letter to Gov. Brownback thanking him for taking action to create a healthier Kansas.
