    You know I'm getting a bit sick of this. A few months ago government jacked up the price per pack with a huge tax increase and now with governments control over the tobacco industry they are lowering the nicotine levels. So we will now be paying more money for less product. WTF why don't they just make smoking illegal all together and be done with it? Is it because they make to much money off the tobacco tax? All this government intrusion into our daily adult decisions, totally sucks balls.

    I'm sure it's for the betterment of everyone and we just don't understand the brilliance of it. :lol:

    As Editec said, some of us care about 'the children', some don't. The taxes off tobacco are going to fund SCIP-providing health insurance for the children. If we quit, guess we join those that also don't care about the children. ;)

    o cry me a mother fucking river....he has done zip about legalizing or decrimializing pot....here you have a class of people who would be more than happy to pay taxes....just to be legal...but nooooooooooooooo

    hell tax the growers....just dont let the government grow it....they can actually fuck up growing pot..amazing....growers would be more than happy to pay a tax , to be growing a legal crop for profit....

    hell you pay 100's for a few seeds when you import them (not that i would be involved in anything that illegal) who gives a shit about a 50 buck tax on that....or on the lb or oz or whatever....

    you got people crying out to be taxed and yet we are ignored and mocked....

    Ain't that the truth. It's for the good of our health and it's for the children are the 2 most popular phrases they like to use to get you to drink the kook aid and go along with what they propose. Next up to help fund the S-Chip program is the soda tax and other sugary drinks that are bad for you. The whole thing is so absurd that as adults we are being taxed out of choosing the foods and beverages we like to consume.
