Group gathers to encourage legislators to increase cigarette tax

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Volunteers from several health organizations are rallying on the steps of the Louisiana Capitol in an effort to urge legislators to increase the state's cigarette tax.

They'd like to see it go up by $1.05 per pack and the tax increased on other tobacco products.
