Laurent Huber, executive director of the Action on Smoking and Health, said at a United Nations health summit last month that taxing tobacco products would be good for both the economy and public health.
"The role of the government should be taking care of public health and securing resources," he said. "Higher tobacco prices [provide] a welcome source of revenue for the government and would have the double effect of creating revenue and addressing the public health issue. The added taxation will hardly put the industry out of business."
