2015

Recently, the Montgomery County Council unanimously voted to approve a 30% excise tax on e-cigarettes. Revenue wise, officials state that the tax could collect between $1.5 million and $2.5 million per year. Prominent groups including the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network are supporting this tax to help create a “healthier” Maryland.
