South Carolina Wants A Piece Of Growing E-Cig Market With Proposed Tax

05.16.13 01:53 PM

Legislators in South Carolina, along with lawmakers in several other States, are proposing*what would amount to a “sin” tax on electronic cigarettes, which are growing in popularity as traditional smokers turn to alternatives perceived as healthier.

It’s still pioneering days for the E-cig industry, as the Federal Food and Drug Administration hasn’t weighed in on what effects the smokeless products have on human health.

If passed, South Carolina’s bill would tax E-cigs at 5 cents per “cartridge.” Many electronic cigarettes operate by producing heated vapor from cartridges filled with a solution of propylene glycol or other vegetable-based liquid that contains nicotine. E-cigs do not produce smoke and do not combust actual tobacco.
