Cigarette Minimum Prices

Half of US states have minimum cigarette price laws that were originally passed to protect small independent retailers from unfair price competition with larger retailers. These laws prohibit cigarettes from being sold below a minimum price that is set by a formula.

Minimum cigarette pricing is a government policy that sets a floor price for cigarettes, ensuring that they cannot be sold below a certain price point.
