Smoking - the nation should GET OUTRAGED because its leading cause of preventable death - is estimated to kill more than 10,000 Massachusetts residents each year and to cost hundreds of millions of dollars of public and private expenditures for health care. To combat this public problem Massachusetts voters in 1992 a referendum question calling for an increased excise tax on tobacco products, with the revenue supporting a Health Protection Fund. Part of the Fund is used to finance the Massachusetts Tobacco Control Program, administered by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
