Proposed Tax Could Help Fund Heroin Addiction Treatment

Gov. Chris Christie proposed a tax on electronic cigarettes and some political figures feel the funds should be used to expand drug treatment services and help fight the heroin epidemic in New Jersey. The proposed tax would generate approximately $35 million in new revenue. Although no decision has been announced as to where these additional funds will be allocated to, many feel that a portion of the funds should be used to help fight drug addiction.
