I am sick to DEATH of hearing about how taxing smokers is a good thing. I don't understand this - it is a fact that people who drink and drive kill a lot more people every year than a smoker does, but you don't see them jacking up the tax on achohol do you? Give it a rest already. Let us have the addictions - we are not hurting anyone but ourselves and if that is the only addiction a person has, good for them. There are much worse things to be addicted to. Start sticking it to the people who really hurt others: DRUNKS.
