"The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids strongly supports the Smuggled Tobacco Prevention Act, legislation that gives Congress an opportunity to promote public health, protect sorely needed revenues, and fight crime by reducing smuggling of tobacco products and related tobacco tax evasion. The measure was introduced yesterday by Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.)."

If they didn’t raise the taxes on tobacco to the extreme there would be no smuggling. Guess that’s too easy of a solution.
