Donate to Healthy Montana

Healthy Montana is an initiative to raise the state tax on cigarettes and other tobacco products including untaxed tobacco products like spit tobacco and e-cigarettes.


Smoking is a costly and deadly habit, and the number one cause of preventable death in Montana. Tobacco corporations have spent millions of dollars on lobbying politicians and campaign contributions to defeat tobacco taxes in Montana. Meanwhile, tobacco and tobacco-related diseases kill 1,600 Montanans each year. It’s time tobacco companies pay for the millions in healthcare costs caused by their deadly products.


I-185 would prevent nearly 100,000 Montanans from losing Medicaid coverage.  This includes thousands of Montana veterans and their families who have sacrificed for us and are now eligible for Medicaid. In addition, some of the new funds will go directly to veterans’ services and to address unmet needs, like suicide prevention for veterans.
