It's not right to increase taxes on a bad habit

Posted: Monday, October 06, 2003

My name is Kayla Hunt and I'm a student in the CHOICE program at JDHS. On Sept. 24 some of the municipal candidates came to the commons of JDHS. After listening to the tobacco tax information, I'm opposed to the taxing of tobacco, because I don't think it will stop people from smoking. I also don't think it's right for them to tax a bad habit. It's bad enough to know you're probably going to die from it, but to make it more expensive to kill yourself seems unreasonable.
