New Study on Roll-Your-Own Cigarettes

Thursday, May 03, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

Researchers from the CDC and the Oregon Health Authority are authors of a peer-reviewed article on federal and state revenue losses that have resulted from smokers making their own cigarettes using pipe tobacco instead of roll-your-own tobacco. This practice results in lost revenue since pipe tobacco is taxed at a lower rate than roll-your-own. The study provides federal and state-specific estimates of revenues lost from April 2009 - August 2011.

The article, "Fiscal and Policy Implications of Selling Pipe Tobacco for Roll-Your-Own Cigarettes in the United States,” has been published by the online peer-reviewed journal, PLoS ONE and available at http://dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0036487.
