According to the article on NJ.com, NJ would see a $35million return on taxing $2.70 per pack on all e-cigarettes.

E-cigarettes are a fairly new alternative to smoking tobacco so there isn’t any research to support whether they are a healthier alternative to tobacco or not yet. But is it too early for the state to say the tax is for “health reasons.” If no studies have been done, how can NJ automatically assume there is a health risk?

Do you think whether, it be for health reasons or not, New Jersey should tax e-cigarettes? Take the poll below.
