State Tobacco Activities Tracking and Evaluation (STATE) System

STATE System

The STATE System is an interactive application that presents current and historical state-level data on tobacco use prevention and control.

Colorado voters approved a ballot measure to increase taxes on cigarettes, e-cigarettes, other tobacco products, and nicotine products, effective January 1, 2021.

The law establishes lower tax rates for products that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorizes as modified risk tobacco products (MRTP), sold for use to reduce harm or risk of tobacco-related disease associated with commercially marketed tobacco products.

However, e-cigarettes, defined as a noncombustible product that produces vapor or aerosol for inhalation from the application of a heating element to a liquid substance containing tobacco derived nicotine, are not eligible for the reduced tax for MRTPs in Colorado.
