Attention New Mexico residents. The cost of vaping is about to go up.
SB 72 would tax vaping devices and liquids at 44% of the wholesale price and $0.50 per single-use cartridge. While increasing taxes on cigarettes are shown to have an effect on people quitting smoking, raising taxes on safer products like vaping are known to discourage people from switching to less risky products.
The next hearing (possibly in S. Finance) is not yet scheduled.
Please take a moment to send a message to your lawmakers urging them to oppose SB 72. Click here or on the banner below to visit their call-action.
You can also use CASAA’s legislator lookup to find who represents you and let them know that you vape, you vote, and that adult freedoms and consumer choice should not be stripped away to benefit the lobbyists with the deepest pockets.
