Chicago May Double Already High E-Cigarette Taxes

Chicago May Double Already High E-Cigarette Taxes

The City of Chicago has some of the highest taxes on e-cigs and e-liquids in the country. The city collects 80 cents per vape device sold and 55 cents per millimeter of e-liquid. That seems excessive but Chicago is going to go higher.Much higher! If the latest proposal from City Hall is approved, the Chicago vape taxes will increase to $1.50 per device and $1.20 per millimeter of e-liquid.


The city is also proposing that all electronic cigarette products must be kept behind the counter. The impetus for the massive tax increase is to discourage minors from using tobacco products. Critics are concerned that making vapor products prohibitively expensive will drive people back to traditional tobacco cigarettes.


Ball State economist Erik Nesson said “I think this is definitely a concern! We don’t have a definitive answer on what the health effects of restrictions on e-cigarette use, through bans on their use in certain areas or through tax increases, might be.” Will this tax increase make cigarettes more appealing? A Yale study from 2015 indeed raises this concern.

Yale Study On E-cig Bans And Teen Smoking

A Yale study published in the Journal of Health Economics showed that increasing restrictions on e-cigarettes increases teen smoking rates. Study author Dr. Abigail Friedman said that increased restrictions /bans lead to more teenagers using conventional cigarettes than otherwise would have done so.


Vaping companies like Freeman Vape Juice take extra care and caution to avoid selling to minors. The true purpose of vaping is to provide another options for adult tobacco consumers. As a society, we must be sure that we are making decisions based on real data. All stakeholders should be involved and heard. No one wants to see young people use any tobacco products.


Lawmakers and public health groups would be well advised to include vapor industry representatives in any deliberative process. Freeman Vape juice and other companies stand ready to work with anyone to reduce tobacco use.

Favorite fruit vape

I have been vaping for over two years now and discovered Jungle awhile back. When I try different vape flavors the thing I always ask my self is this a flavor that will eventually get boring. Jungle is not that flavor. I have ordered it many times now but I have to let it steep to get all the flavor profiles. Usually three to four weeks and boom. Great juice!

This is the smoothest best desert vape. Smooth and flavorful!

Cookie Perfection

I was really impressed with how authentic and delicious this juice was from the first time I opened it. The aroma is lovely but the taste rises above all my expectations for a Chocolate Chip Cookie flavored juice. Very scrumptious vaping experience. Highly recommended.
