Acetone A flammable, colorless liquid used as a
solvent. It’s one of the active ingredients in nail polish
remover. The tobacco industry refuses to say how
acetone gets into cigarettes.

Ammonia A colorless, pungent gas. The tobacco
industry says that it adds flavor, but scientists have
discovered that ammonia helps you absorb more
nicotine keeping you hooked on smoking.

Arsenic A silvery white very poisonous chemical
element. This deadly poison is used to make
insecticides, and it is also used to kill gophers and rats.

Benzene A flammable liquid obtained from coal tar
and used as a solvent. This cancer causing chemical is
used to make everything from pesticides to detergent to

Benzoapyrene A yellow crystalline carcinogenic
hydrocarbon found in coal tar and cigarette smoke. It’s
one of the most potent cancer causing chemicals in the

Butane A hydrocarbon used as a fuel. Highly
flammable butane is one of the key ingredients in

Cadmium A metallic chemical element used in alloys.
This toxic metal causes damage to the liver, kidneys,
and the brain and stays in your body for years.

Formaldehyde A colorless pungent gas used in

Propylene Glycol A sweet hygroscopic viscous liquid
used as antifreeze and as a solvent in brake fluid. The
tobacco industry claims they add it to keep cheap
“reconstituted tobacco” from drying out, but scientists
say it aids in the delivery of nicotine (tobaccos active
drug) to the brain.

Turpentine A colorless volatile oil. Turpentine is very
toxic and is commonly used as a paint thinner.

Attention maryland smokers: buy your cigarettes before midnight

E-cigarettes rising in popularity, but risks still unknown

As we’ve reported before, Maryland’s cigarette tax is doubling to $2 per pack as of Tuesday. The Washington Examiner lays out the math

“Sales are going to drop all over Maryland, I’m sure,” said Ragu Nanthan, an employee at TJ Beer Wine and Liquors on New Hampshire Avenue in Takoma Park. The regular price for a pack of Marlboros at the shop ran $4.97 on Friday. On Tuesday, that cost will spike to $6.35, he said.

Nationally, the price per pack of cigarettes is expected to hit $4.63 on Tuesday, said Vince Willmore, vice president for communications for the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids. In D.C., the average is expected to be $4.64. In Virginia, smokers will pay an average $3.84 per pack.

So, two cartons, with 20 packs and 400 cigarettes, would sell for $127 in Maryland but only $77 in Virginia. Our previous report on illegal cigarette smuggling showed it was on the rise because of high cigarette taxes, and in this case, such an illegal transaction could net the smuggler a lucrative $50, or 65 percent profit. Plus there’s online smuggling too.

The Examiner article also quotes a citizens health group that advocated the initiative as a way to “help deter as many as 50,000 children from becoming smokers.” But why stop there banning cigarettes would stop even more children from becoming smokers. The group also is happy that the money raised will go for general health care programs, but again, why hit smokers with a suspiciously round dollar increase to fund general state spending?

Of course, the real reason for the cigarette tax hike is that smokers are a politically unfavored minority that can loaded with higher taxes to fund unrelated government spending programs for the majority. So too with taxing alcohol to fund public transit, taxing bottled water to fund general spending, and taxing video games to fund juvenile detention facilities. And that’s just in the last week.
