Opponents ultimately reject the tax, no matter how the revenues would be spent.

“I’m opposed to every manner of taxing,” says Steven Greenhut, Western Region director for the R Street Institute, a free market think tank that promotes limited government. “Let people make their own choices.”

He doesn’t like that Proposition 56 would tax e-cigarettes, too.

“Vaping is not entirely safe,” he says. “But it’s pretty clear that vaping is far less harmful than smoking.”
