The same story is on in West Virginia, raising tobacco taxes by an additional dollar. This campaign is nationwide so go to the website of your state government and search for tobacco tax and we are sure you will find it.
Chuck Hamsher says those increases will again be introduced this year at the State House. "Tobacco is a plague upon the land," he said on Tuesday’s MetroNews Talkline.
A plague, really? I thought the plague we had was HIV/AIDS or HPV. We have so many plagues’ going on these days; tobacco is the only one that is being discussed. Why? Because the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and BIG PHARM wants to sell their nicotine drugs! Money will buy just about anything including gullible state legislators.
