First Nations Communities and Tobacco Taxation: A Commentary
Samji, Hasina; Wardman, Dennis
American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research: The Journal of the National Center, v16 n2 p1-10 2009
Taxation of tobacco is a widely used strategy that promotes smoking cessation among adults and reduces cigarette consumption among continuing smokers. First Nations (FN) populations' tobacco use is estimated to be 2-3 times that of other Canadians and, in part, a reflection that tobacco products purchased on reserve by FN people are tax exempt. The purpose of this paper is to present a commentary related to the implementation and impact of a tobacco tax within an FN community.
