LANSING – A Bill Would Increase Cigarette Taxes By $1.50 Per Pack in Michigan. Legislation from state Representative Rachel Hood would increase the taxes on a pack of cigarettes in Michigan by another dollar-50 and tax electronic cigarettes and vaping products as if they were tobacco. The Grand Rapids Democrat says she believes increasing the taxes on a pack of smokes to three-dollars-50-cents would help get people to kick their addiction and adds e-cigarettes need to be taxed as tobacco products. Another bill from Republican Representative Thomas Albert of Lowell would ban the sale of vaping products to anyone under the age of 18.
