The tax on a pack of cigarettes goes up by two bucks on January first tied to the voter approval of Measure 108 last month … and it affects e-cigarettes too.  It’s the first time cigarette taxes will be going up in Oregon.  Oregon’s cigarette tax will rise to $3.33  a pack – the highest on the West coast – and for that matter – the highest in the country.  It’s expected to raise almost $135 million dollars in annual revenue that will go toward providing access to health care on the Oregon Health Plan and will fund the state’s tobacco prevention and cessation programs to help smokers kick the habit.
