--- Vote YES on Prop 29, on June 5 2012 --- Prop 29 - The California Cancer Research Act - is a June 2012 ballot initiative projected to save over 104,000 lives, prevent over 225,000 kids from smoking, and generate over $700 million annually for research into cancers and other tobacco-related diseases through a $1 per-pack tax on tobacco products.
The tobacco industry knows Prop 29 will reduce current and future smokers. That's why they're pumping over $20 million into a deceptive statewide advertising campaign, fronted by the same doctor who protected their efforts to kill California's last attempt to change tobacco tax.
The tobacco industry spends over $100M every year on lobbying Sacramento, and tens of millions to defeat citizen-initiatives like Prop 29. That's why California's tobacco tax hasn't been changed since 1998 and at $0.87 per-pack, it's among the lowest in the nation.
Same doctor. Same messengers. Same lies. Vote YES on Prop 29.
