A South Carolina Bill Could Place Tax on Electronic Cigarettes
Miami, FL -- (SBWire) -- 05/22/2013 --South Carolina passed a bill on Wednesday that would allow the state to tax electronic cigarettes. Although the bill passed, supporters have acknowledged that it has a small chance of becoming a law this year. Optima Cigs is one of many electronic cigarette companies that offer smokers an alternative to traditional tobacco and who would be affected by the law.
A subcommittee has also sent a proposal to begin a debate on how to handle the new electronic cigarette technology. The proposal would add a 5 cent-per-milliliter tax to the liquid-nicotine mixture used in e-Cigs. The tax would not be able to surpass 10 percent of the state’s tax on a pack of traditional cigarettes.
“South Carolina should wait and let the new technology settle down before taking action. After all, no other US state has a tax dedicated solely to e-Cigs,” said a representative from Optima Cigs.
Optima Cigs is an electronic cigarette company that uses advanced technology to give smokers the same smoking experience one would receive with traditional tobacco cigarettes, except with no smoke, secondhand smoke, tar or tobacco. Optima Cigs are free of tobacco. Since there is no smoke, there’s also no offensive secondhand smoke.
Optima Cigs offers customers the flexibility to try their Basic Starter Kit that comes fully equipped with all the components necessary to begin the journey into the e-cigarette world. The kit contains an Optima Cigs Electronic Cigarette Lithium Ion High Capacity Battery, a battery that was built using an innovative 2-part technology, to ensure the consumer will receive an optimal smoking experience. The kit also includes a USB charger, a hard pack case and five nicotine cartridges – equivalent to five packs of traditional cigarettes.
For those looking for an authentic smoking experience or an alternative smoking choice, then Optima Cigs is the way to go. Optima Cigs offers three electronic starter kits, and five different full-flavored cartridges to choose from. The cartridge flavors include Cherry, Java, Menthol, Tobacco and Vanilla. Nicotine levels include: 18mg, 12mg, 6mg and 0mg.
