Colorado Cigarette Sales Climbed In 2015

Cigarette sales in Colorado increased last year for the first time in a decade, according to the state health department. That translates into 194 million packs of cigarettes purchased in Colorado in 2014, up slightly from 2014. But sales are still down sharply from the 300 million packs that were bought in 2004, when voters approved a steep increase in the cigarette tax per pack.
