Chicago needs to balance their budget and the only items they can think to raise taxes on are alcohol and tobacco. The county estimates the new tax would generate around $11 million dollars in revenue.

The population of any major city consists of smokers, nonsmokers and people who do or don’t drink. Taxes should be increased across the board for everyone who lives and works in the city. Using behavior modification is not what government is meant to do, nor should they.
