A tobacco habit is expensive -- in more ways than one. In Colorado, a typical pack of cigarettes costs about $5.65. While this may not seem like a lot of cash, buying pack after pack translates into billions of dollars in health care costs in Colorado and nationwide. Health care costs related to tobacco use cost each Colorado household $753 a year.
