california-ab-7-workplace-smoking-law.pngCalifornia voters will soon vote on Proposition 56, a ballot initiative that would raise the cigarette tax throughout the state from 87 cents per pack to $2.87 per pack, according to SFGate.com. Money from the increased tax on tobacco would go to help fund MediCal, along with education efforts and cessation programs to help prevent smoking in California. While voters debate this highly visible measure, many have failed to notice the more subtle, but still important changes to workplace smoking laws that passed this May.
