The California Healthcare, Research and Prevention Tobacco Tax Act of 2016

The measure, which proposes raising the tax by $2 per pack of cigarettes, will not only save lives and produce long-term cost-savings, but will also raise revenue to improve healthcare and dental disease prevention programs.

CDA and LADS encourages dentists to support the measure and take action by signing a petition to make sure this measure qualifies for the November ballot. You may also encourage family, friends, colleagues and patients to sign the petition.

To obtain a petition form, please contact LADS and one may be mailed or delivered to your offices within two business days. For more information about the ballot, contact LADS.
