Letter to the Editor: Vote yes on Prop 29

I find it worrisome that the tobacco companies are putting so much money into Prop 29. Could it be true that they fear losing business? Could the increase in cigarette taxes actually curb cigarette smoking? Apparently they think it will.

And why do we care if some of the California tax money to fight cancer leaves our state? Cancer knows no state boundaries. If we can reduce the causes and enhance a cure, isnand#8217;t that our goal?

I say, vote YES on Prop 29.
