The Anchorage Assembly recently voted to classify e-cigarettes as tobacco products leading to a new 55% tax on all vapes sold in the city.

The Assembly voted overwhelmingly in favor of the classification, which already exists for traditional tobacco products like cigarettes and pipe tobacco. The motion to classify e-cigarettes as tobacco products were made by two members of the Assembly, Assemblywoman Suzanne LaFrance, and Assemblyman Christopher Constant.
