Time to quit. Not that I ever started.
The thing that always bothered me about cigs is the taxing scheme. The feds have a tax on them, the states (most) have a tax on them, when you buy them at the store you pay sales tax based on the price of the cigs with the state and federal tax built in. Taxed twice!
Heard April 1 a new fed tax of $7.00 per carton on cigarettes---heard anything?
might as well tax it to discourage eating thus save the planet.
Save the planet by slimming us down and reducing diabetes and other cardio/pulmonary diseases. Another benefit, once slimmed down, no longer smoking and in better physical shape, we will be more relaxed with our lower blood pressure. This, will in turn, cut down on road rage, fast starts/stops, and other basic habits that decrease fuel mileage. With nobody smoking, we'll have a billion fewer cigarette butts on our roads (the smokers God-given ashtray) and fewer wildfires. The healthcare system will be saved due to the cost savings of not having to treat all this cancer and other related diseases. We'll all live to 100 and save the planet by this one tax!! Genius!!
