According to NJ1015's Kelly Waldron, approximately 50 small business owners are banding together to oppose a tax on electronic cigarettes. The group, known as the New Jersey Vapor Retailers Coalition, is attempting to stop the proposed tax in Governor Christie's upcoming budget.

The only state that currently taxes e-cigarettes is Minnesota. The group of owners are hoping that with their efforts, they'll prevent New Jersey from becoming the 2nd state to tax their business.

What do you think? Does New Jersey need the tax revenue from the business? Or does NJ need to do whatever they can to keep the industry happy and not tax the e-cigarettes?
