Yesterday an Article in the New York Times highlighted a new A CDC report which verifies that price does matter to tobacco users.
The 2009 federal excise tax was not levied at the same rate across tobacco products.
As a result, smokers are shifting from more heavily taxed products to less expensive ones: from cigarettes and roll your own loose tobacco to pipe tobacco and large cigars.
